Harvard’s Linda Hill Shatters Myths About Leadership

Posted by jcmaziquemd on March 13, 2011


The first black woman professor at Harvard Business School has some unusual views about leadership. She believes leaders are self-made. "Leadership is a self-development process," she insists. "You have to teach yourself." And that old cliché about finding a mentor? "Why would someone do that who’s already paying you?" professor Linda Hill asks. Instead, she believes you have to become "a perfect protégé." More myth-shattering wisdom from the woman who heads the Leadership Initiative at HBS in this video interview with The Root‘s editor-in-chief, Henry Louis Gates Jr.
