Things just escalated

LEADERSHIP has been described as the process of social influence in which one person can enlist the aid and support of others in the accomplishment of a common task (Chemers 1997).

From a “theory of leadership” perspective, what is interesting about the Occupy Wall Street movement is the absence of any one person as the identifiable leader. ¬†This is remarkable when you consider that the movement started on September 17th and remains in full swing.

What can business leaders learn from the Occupy movement?

One thing comes to mind.

A resilient organisation is united be shared beliefs (“we are the 99%”).
