Video: Lessons in leadership

One of the world's leading thinkers talks about leadership.

I was recently asked some questions on the subject of leadership by a British student on the Executive Education Programme at the Harvard Business School. The questions focussed on my own leadership journey and the lessons I have learnt along the way. The video, originally intended just to help this particular student with her assignment ended up being shown to the entire Harvard course (with our permission!). So I thought I would share it with you here.

In this video, I offer answers to the following questions:

- What was the defining moment in your leadership journey?
- What are your values, principles and boundaries?
- How did you discover your strengths and passions?
- How do you build an integrated life?
- How do you build a team?
- What difference have you sought to make in the world?
- What have you learnt about leadership?

If there is interest, I would be happy to make further videos on the subject of leadership in the coming months. So if you have any particular questions (in the same style as above) that you would like answered, please email them to my office here and I will try to find the time to do so later this year.

In the meantime, if you are interested in more on the subject of leadership, then I have written extensively about it in my book 'Lessons on Leadership: A Weekly Reading of the Jewish Bible' which, as it happens, includes a foreword by Professor Ronald Heifetz, founding director of the Center for Public Leadership at the Harvard Kennedy School.
