Why is the leadership gap widening?

2 minutes read
The world is changing fast and the need for leaders is bigger than ever. We see organisations create programs to develop the potential in leaders but why the leadership gap is widening despite so many initiatives? Our today's guest, Magdalena Gera-Pikulska, talks about this and other aspects of leadership.

 Magdalena discuss following questions:

  • How to recognize natural born leaders?
  • What is the difference between a leader and a boss?
  • How can companies make leadership programs work and be effective?
  • How true leaders get along with failure?
  • How women are perceived when we talk about leadership and why do we still have so little women on the C levels in the organizations?

The quotes used in the converations come from the following TED Talks:

"Leaders can let you fail and yet not let you be a failure." by Stanley McChrystal Stanley McChrystal: Listen, learn ... then lead

"Women are not making it to the top of any profession anywhere in the world" by Sheryl Sandberg Sheryl Sandberg: Why we have too few women leaders
