The Incomplete Leader
I noticed a new perspective on leadership methods in HBR Feb 07 by Deborah Ancona c.s. She argues no human being is perfect and no leader can be perfect. So maybe its for the best to stop trying to be a perfect leader. Leaders should find others who can offset their limitations and complement their strenghts. A framework of distributed leadership is provided. This leadership model mentions 4 important capabilities: sensemaking, relating, visioning and inventing. Do you agree we should stop expecting so much of leaders in organizations?
