Leaders are made, not born
Tomorrow's Leadership event – 26 November 2013
Reports on a CIPD and Tomorrow’s Company event held in November 2013 which explored what good leadership is, how we choose our leaders and whether good leadership can be learned.
The panel was Dame Helen Alexander chairman of UBM plc, the Port of London Authority (PLA) and Incisive Media; John Knights, Chairman, LeaderShape and Peter Cheese, Chief Executive, CIPD.
"Broadly, leadership is the ability to empower and engage others to work towards a common goal,
and in a world of ever increasing complexity, where individuals most often have to collaborate
outside of formal hierarchical lines, leadership must take place at all levels within a company."
This is the second report from the Tomorrow’s Leadership series of events.
