Every so often, we see a larger-than-life example of what happens when someone is not working from their whole brain and without knowledge of their Striving Style. Such is the case with Oprah’s OWN network and the current challenges the network, as well as Oprah herself as a leader, are experiencing. Rumors about how the network is failing to thrive and speculation about what Oprah hasn’t done and should be doing seem to be everywhere.

I've pulled this up from the Hub archives (2008) as it reminded me of the edgy, provocative leadership conversations and 'back and forth' thinking we used to have in The Leadership Hub. See the conversation below. More conversations like this in here, please! Maybe we should start the Hub email newsletter again. We stopped it because we felt you all received too much of that kind of stuff. Phil Dourado, Leadership Hub Curator/Caretaker

Whatever is actually said in words, this, below, is the real dialogue going on between great leaders and people they inspire.
This dialogue is also going on within great leaders. It was once said of Walt Disney by one of his closest colleagues, "Walt had no fear." I don't think that's quite right. I think he overcame fear - particularly of the unknown - in himself and inspired others to step out into the unknown with him. That's what great leaders do.

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: email@example.com
