More than ever we need to broaden what it means to lead. Leadership has a too limiting definition. It seems to relate to only the chosen few, and we need to challenge this perspective.
We can respond by starting to build in our organisations unlikely leadership. The founding principle of unlikely leadership is knowing that leadership is inherent in everyone if it is developed and empowered. There is so much untapped human potential hidden within every work place. Increased complexity and constant disruption means that organisations need as broad a leadership bench as possible. Developing unlikely leaders - unleashing leadership from unexpected people and places makes sense.
