The End of Leadership
13 May 2013
Who will lead? The question has been asked by humans since time began. Alexander, Napoleon, George Washington, Henry Ford, Steve Jobs…history is an endless succession of people who purport to know the way, and of others willing to follow. But things are different now. Barbara Kellerman of Harvard, an expert on leadership, says in The End of Leadership that we’ve reached an unprecedented place, where leaders are not trusted, not revered, not followed. That holds in politics and the corporate world. What to do? Kellerman says we need a new understanding of how change happens, and systems that are more democratic and collaborative. Join us for an evening that explores the future of society and business.
