What is Leadership?

Leadership is complex and content-specific with many different models and philosophies. Use this resource, developed in partnership with Simon Padley, to consider different approaches to leadership and to encourage reflection on your own leadership behaviours

Navigating the leadership landscape can be challenging and discovering a style and approach that resonates with you can take time. This resource will encourage you to consider and develop your own opinions and approach to this topic.

Start by considering the quotes below. They represent a range of leadership views from people in different environments including sport, education, business and the arts. 

Leadership, like coaching, is fighting for the hearts and souls of men and getting them to believe in you.”

Eddie Robinson (American Football Coach)

Leadership is getting someone to do what they don't want to do, to achieve what they want to achieve." 

Tom Landry (American Football Player and Coach)

Leadership should be born out of the understanding of the needs of those who would be affected by it.”

Marian Anderson (Musician)
