Learning REWIRED Ep.2: The paradox of powerful leadership with Alf Rehn
Learning REWIRED (Ep.2), the official Headspring podcast. This week we interview Alf Rehn, Professor of Innovation, Design, and Management and regular feature in Thinkers 50 lists. The topic? Why power and leadership are not the same thing and how leaders can learn to work more skilfully with power.
Power and leadership are often used interchangeably, but as we learn in this dialogue with Professor Alf Rehn, one of the qualities that separates good leadership from great is the understanding that this is not the case.
The distribution of decision making power and accountability throughout an organisation is challenging for most leaders. But, Rehn argues, this is an increasingly important skill to master for the leaders of the future.
