And if there's a strong current, it's going to be these currents much more than any individual movements of the leader that will determine where he or she ends up on the other side. And it's the leader’s interaction with these currents that will make or break their endeavor, rather than their actions themselves."Resources Mentioned in This EpisodeBook: Hidden Talent by Adam GrantBook: Think Again by Adam GrantBook: Wooden on Leadership by John WoodenAbout The International Leadership Association (ILA)The ILA was created in 1999 to bring together professionals interested in studying, practicing, and teaching leadership.
