Polymorphic Leadership is Everywhere
Blom, Management Consultant, Netherlands

This page is really interesting. But I do not agree with the statement, that polymorphic leadership is only present in traditional countries. When I see the influence of pop-stars, the not content-related influence academic titles give, I believe that there is still a lot of charisma (which is typical of polymorphic influence) around.

Polymorphic Opinion Leadership

You are correct when you say that this kind of leaders is ubiquitous. Nowadays, multitasking is the trend. Although not everybody is a multi tasker, meaning not everyone is really capable of doing such great jobs with efficiency and efficacy.

I was thinking the same when I came across polymorphic leadership in the article. The influence of stars is actually more powerful in media-dominated culture (and that's how the influence spreads around). Maybe on this subject it's less confusing to characterize the leaders rather than the societies.

Polymorphic Leadership and Developing Nations

Their views on various issues can be fundamental depending on their area of specialization. Hence polymorphic leadership is common in the developing nations.

This is in reaction to Ms. J Opondo (Kenya). I am not comfortable with your opinion, "fundamental depending on their area of specialization...common in the developing nations." this is contradictory because even in "developed" nations where successful corporations abound, you see several leaders who are multitaskers and at the same time specialists themselves. This is probably what our good friend, Chen (Italy and China) is talking about when he says that it is best to just "characterize the leaders rather than societies". Perhaps, this could be their way of responding to the evolving changes of the global environment, e.g. financial crisis, social demands and pressures and others.
