The essence of leadership
Leadership has been defined as the art of motivating a group of people to act towards achieving a common goal. The definition has a common thread no matter what discipline it's applied. "Leadership does not change," said Jack Meany, retired CEO of Norris Industries, a Fortune 500 company. "It is the leaders who change." The definition has stayed consistent in the last century, but different leaders and styles have evolved. This documentary brings nine voices from nine distinguished leaders to discuss important aspects of leadership. It also dives into a few thoughts about leadership during an economic crisis. The documentary was produced over five months between October 2008, and March 2009, during a time of dramatic change in American business.
