Jack Welch once claimed that great leaders are "relentless and boring." Management thinkers largely agree: Good leaders, so the narrative goes, are consistent in their decision making, stick to their commitments, and remain on-message. The trouble is, much as we may value consistency in our leaders, we don’t live in a world that rewards it - at least not in the long term.
""Both/And” Leadership" is from the May 2016 issue of Harvard Business Review.
