Of course, it’s a logical goal to try and avoid the “accidental” leadership scenario where possible. This means focusing on the “deliberate” leader – one that has been identified, developed and prepared for their new role in management.

I found the Former First Lady to be completely captivating, quite hilarious and more ‘real’ than I expected, and I noticed a thread throughout many of her remarks that seemed, at least to me, to be interesting perspectives on leadership.
What makes a good leader and who gets to decide? This is a question that I’ve been pondering lately. It’s sort of like when someone says “they say this new restaurant is really great!” Don’t you wonder who ‘they are’?
