In John O. Burdett’s latest article he poses some interesting questions in a time when reflection and introspection are constant companions. Questions such as “What does it really mean to be a leader?” and “Do I possess the leadership capability the team needs in the future?”.
“As you think about these troubled times, we would ask you to reflect on the language of leadership. In particular, a word that is currently very much on our mind, ‘courage’. Change the context and you change the meaning of a word. In the midst of today’s business turmoil, leadership is clearly not about life or death. It does demand courage, however.”
