What Makes a Leader a Leader

In the January 2007 of Harvard Business Review many top business leaders talk about their 'leading experience' at the top. The first one to give the views is the CEO of Nokia and I thought good, we get to hear from someone from Finland. He emphasises humility.

Next came the president of Blackwater USA, Gary Jackson and they are into military contracting. Now the president goes gaga about 'energy' and how they want 80% solution that can be done quickly vs. 100% solution that would take 3 weeks to devise.

The word military contracting rang a bell and when I searched the internet for the company I get so much more interesting stuff that adds a lot to 'leading' of companies, what the HBRs of the world leave out. Thank god for the internet.

Blackwater has a very bad reputation in some circles in the US.
