Leadership: The Transition From Hero To Host

Organizational innovator Meg Wheatley talks about the critical journey of leader from hero to host.  Hero plays the role of depowerment, doing the thinking and deciding for people instead of building their capacity for engaged empowerment. The opposite is leader as host, convening conversations that engage and matter. This is leader as facilitator whose success is measured by how well people think and decide for themselves in benefit of the whole.
