About 300 comments have been pasted on the Harvard Business Review (HBR) Linked in site response to this recent question. Check them out. While many are repetitive and simply restate what we already know, others offer sharp insight or provide interesting links. I find that the greatest value of such discussions is that these posts remind us of how we “should” be leading. I will not venture into the debate about whether leaders are born or developed, but I do believe that we have to continually remind ourselves of how to lead, as well as to repeatedly develop leadership, management and HR skills in frontline supervision. I am a fan of repetition and reminder.
Several posts linked to articles about Servant Leadership, which I always enjoy. I would enjoy hearing comments about how the concept of Servant Leadership fits with the drive and tough decision making required of successful executives.
Anyone want to comment on how to lead and to not “pass the buck?”
