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.
