This article uses the lesson learned by Indiana Jones and his sidekick Sallah in the movie The Raiders of the Lost Arc. If you remember the scene where they are looking for the Well of the Souls in which the Arc of the Covenant was buried, they discover that the rod used to mount the head piece was too long and that Bellah (the french archaeologist) was in fact digging in the wrong place.
I wanted to ask the question, when we think of leadership in the 21st Century are most organizations simply digging in the wrong place in light of the fact that the last two global leadership forecasts produced by DDI pronounce that leadership development is going nowhere fast. By the way, I agree with them. Perhaps we need to re conceive leadership in a different way when considering the complex, ever changing, information overloaded world in which we live. What do you think? http://bit.ly/uqpANl
