Earlier on today I bumped into quite an interesting, and very thought-provoking, article put together by Bill Cohen around the subject of "The Seven Deadly Sins of Leadership". It’s one of those articles that picks up from the wise teachings of Peter Drucker and it surely is an essential reading put together by Bill that every leader should go through. I am not going to quote much from the article itself over here, since I wouldn’t want to spoil it for you (Yes, it is *that* good!), so head over there and enjoy the read.
Then after you have finished reading through it I would encourage you to have a look into a YouTube video clip I bumped into earlier on in the week which complements quite nicely Bill’s article above. It’s titled Imagine Leadership and here is the description from the video itself:
"Nitin Nohria and Amanda Pepper of Harvard Business School’s Leadership Initiative collaborated with XPLANE to create this video in order to generate a discussion of the value and importance of leadership to address some of society’s most pressing problems.
"It is my desire to inspire people of all ages and social demographics to think about leadership on a broad level, contemplate what it means to them and what individual impact they can have when it comes to leading," says Nohria"
Quite an interesting introduction, don’t you think? Well, the video is way better. And since it is already Friday I think I am going to stop here now and just embed the video clip itself so you can play it. There will be very very little I would need to add before, during and after, but perhaps suffice to say that if Enterprise 2.0 Leaders should be looking up for role models this would be *the* video to play in front of them. Six minutes of pure genius and inspiration permeating all over the place, to say the least!
Have a good one everyone!
