“Practising leadership: basic principles” with Ronald Heifetz

I am currently attending a course at Harvard University entitled “Practicing Leadership: Fundamentals”, led by Ronald Heifetz, a globally recognized expert on leadership. Heifetz offers a new perspective on leadership, where he imagines leadership as a dance floor. In this metaphor, the dance floor is a place of action, while the balcony is a place of reflection and broader perspective. A balance between the two is essential for effective leadership. The most common leadership failures stem from misdiagnosis.
