For the next six weeks, until approximately December 1st, our Weekly Wisdom blogs will go on hiatus while I get quiet, retool and prepare the next year's worth of wisdom. During this hiatus, please follow the continuing conversation about powerful, wise leading on Twitter (@fostermobley and @wisdomleading), FB (Dr. Foster Mobley and Wisdom Leading) and/or LinkedIn (Foster Mobley, Ed.D.).
I look forward to a new year of Weekly Wisdoms and the many great connections they stimulate. Many blessings to you all.

For over 40 years, gurus of all stripes have been promoting the "competency model" of leadership, insisting that mastering skill sets such as motivation and vision-setting is the key to effective leading. But if that's true, where are all the great leaders? In reality, the corporate world and the world at large suffer from a dearth of effective leaders equipped to perform a great leader's primary duty: building the capacity of followers to deliver breakthrough results.
Into this dysfunctional paradigm comes "Leadersh*t: Rethinking the True Path to Great Leading" with a shocking, refreshing wake-up call of unconventional wisdom.
