I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
I've just read an interesting article published this year by Flynn Heath Holt Leadership in the USA called "Why Meetings Matter Even More for Women"
At first I thought not many of us had been invited which I felt simply reinforces the problem of a lack of shared understanding and lack of commitment to change. It turned out that many men had been invited but hadn't turned up.
Does that suggest they are less concerned? After all, it doesn't impact their lives.
Or does it?
