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.

The first day of HCI’s 8th annual Human Capital Summit began with a keynote from best-selling author and thought leader Dan Pink. Pink looked out at the packed house of human capital attendees and promptly convinced them they were all in sales. At some point in everyone’s day, he concluded, there are times when you must convince someone else to part with something they hold dear—it might be time, money, attention, engagement, etc.
