Essence Of Leadership
May 26, 2023
In his book “Managing For The Future” published in 1992, Peter Drucker writes about the essence of leadership; he says that leadership is not about someone demonstrating some leadership qualities or charisma. Instead, the essence of leadership is to deliver “performance.”
Leadership is a means to an end. We don’t lead because we want to, because of our charisma, or because of (a romantic idea of) power that comes with leadership. We lead because we seek results.
