“Even the most talented leaders require the input and leadership of others, constructively solicited and creatively applied. It’s time to celebrate the incomplete— that is, the human — leader.”
Ancona, Malone, Orlikowski and Senge: “In Praise of the Incomplete Leader” (Harvard Business Review, 2007)
As a leadership coach, time and time again, for over 5 years, and probably with 4-500 companies, I come across individuals and organisations constantly chasing (often directly) something that does not exist. Namely 'Leadership'.
Leadership cannot be found, grasped, tasted, smelt or acquired . We will never find it in the fridge one day or fall over a hunk of it in the ceo's office.
It is a nominalisation, a verb pretending to be a noun (I think as scientists, we also chased 'heat' as a thing for around 200 years).

If you voted in the World Leadership Gurus Top 30, the Hub's founder, Phil Dourado, came 14th this year (2012), up three places from 17th last year. The organisers say it is "because of the originality and impact of your work" that Phil was put in the Top 30 in the first place. And that means this Hub and the award-winning corporate versions we run for large companies. For more on how a private corporate version of The Hub works, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
