What You Really Need to Lead

Author: Robert Kaplan Interview by Roberta Holland (via Harvard Business School)

Leadership is Not Genetic

After a decade of teaching leadership courses at Harvard Business School, Robert Steven Kaplan has fielded the question of whether leadership can be taught more often than he can count.

Kaplan addresses the question again in his new book, What You Really Need to Lead. His answer: an emphatic yes. Leadership is a skill, not some genetic trait inherited by a lucky few, Kaplan says. In the book he provides practical suggestions, exercises, and anecdotes of executives facing different challenges to illustrate what makes a good leader and how to become one.
