Leadership for the times

Opinion  |  KJ John
Published:  |  Modified:

True leadership is the art of setting new directions and then creating the environment for that vision to become possible; not just plausible. Nurturing the right climate for ideas and ideals to flourish is just as important as the new directions set.

Follower-ship consequently is the discipline of acknowledging visionary leadership and the requisite obedience to new and shared directions.

Together they make up what is called a purpose-inspired life of leadership and follower-ship. Peter Vaill, my doctoral chairperson, calls this ‘Managing as a Performing Art’ (also the title of a book).
