It has been said that “life imitates art.” In a similar vein, I would suggest that, in many respects, business imitates sport, notably major collegiate and professional athletics. Think about it.

Those Who Want to Lead vs. Those Who Can

May 15, 2013 | Warren Bobrow | HCI

I’m not a big fan of leadership theories or any of the mysticism that surrounds what makes a great leader. Yes, we need people to direct employees and inspire others in the organization (personally, I think the second one comes from individual employees, but that’s a topic for another blog post), but exotic hypotheses about how this works have not been supported.
