Chris Lowney: "If you want to lead well, you must know yourself, your strengths, your weaknesses, your values. Second, you need to motivate yourself and other people with a real desire to excel and, most importantly, with goals that are bigger than a person's ego. Third, "only the people who are flexible and able to continually adapt to a changing world are the ones who can really lead effectively." And last, but not least, is love, which refers to "treating other people in a way that respects their dignity and tries to develop their potential."
Chris Lowney: "We associate leadership only with people who are in charge. This traditional notion of leadership should be challenged, as it is not the solution anymore for the complex environment we live in. We need proactive leadership at all levels within companies and organisations, not just from the people who are in charge"
The renowned leadership expert visited ESADE Business and Law Schools to take part in several discussions about leadership.
