There are few questions in management that have been looked at in so many different ways, and yet there seems to be little consensus as to what the answer is. Ask any leader or aspiring leader this question, and there will be as many different answers as there are being questioned. Some will favor the “team player” approach, that any leader is only as good as the team they assemble; others will suggest it is about fearlessness; some may even think it is related to a mystic ability to make the right decisions at the right time. One thing is for the sure – few people will agree on the same definition.Practical implicationsThis paper provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world’s leading organizations.Originality/valueThe briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
