Why do we see so few great leaders?
WikiStage ESCP Europe 5
  • Description

    "What is great leadership?"

    "Good leaders share some common characteristics. For example, they are charismatic, they have a vision, they are strong. [...] But being a great leader is hard because that is not all to it. For me a great leader is somebody who has those characteristics and also represents something more, a common cause, a common purpose."

    "The purpose, is the reason why we do what we do. We can see the power of purpose-driven leadership each day in the millions of students and of full-time workers who engage themselves besides their work in activities in NGOs. They don't do that for the money. They don't do that for any kind of material benefit. They do that because they believe in the purpose, they believe in the benefit of what they do. They are passionate about that. This passion makes them do those amazing things, besides all the other things they have to do. They invest their most precious resources, their time and their energy into that."

    "I would like to see more companies and politicians use this kind of leadership."

    "Crowdsourcing meaning thinking together about which purposes the country could serve. [...] It's up to us to see what we want to do with the expression crowd-sourced purpose. Because in the end, becoming a great leader is very hard if you don't have a common purpose or a common ground to share with the people you lead."
