A fallacy of modern business states that successful businesses shine due to the visionary brilliance of a lone heroic leader. Alas, that’s a simplistic view that sidelines others’ talent. Business leader and coach Lorna Davis explains the difference between the hero model and the collaborative model of leadership. She doesn’t suggest specific techniques to build the “radical interdependence” that businesses need, but that’s the point: There is no one-size-fits-all framework. Companies thrive only when they invite all employees to contribute their unique skills and ideas.
