Wisdom And Leadership

I read an article recently that said a leader must have wisdom. Well, on the surface that seems rather obvious. But, then I got to thinking about that. What exactly is this essential called wisdom?

In thinking back over the leaders that I’ve worked with or been able to observe, they all had what many considered wisdom. However, there were always some people that considered their wise actions and proclamations somewhere between idiotic and stupid. So, wisdom to one person was quite the opposite to another. It seemed that the persons seeing wisdom were the persons that agreed with the leader’s position. Then it would appear that wisdom is a rather subjective term. A leader showing wisdom is perhaps a leader that is doing and saying what most people agree with. If that is the case then one must question whether wisdom is an essential quality of a good leader, or is it simply a course of action that is most popular?

It can be said that a wise person is a deep thinker, experienced, insightful, and judicious. That all sounds pretty good. But then, the term “wise” can also be used instead of sly, canny, crafty, and sleight. So, which is it? Good or bad?

Perhaps true wisdom can only be seen clearly after the fact. If a statement or course of action turns out to be correct then it can be said to be wise. Or, was it just blind luck?

  1. There are so many things a leader can have; from traits, to behaviors, to beliefs.

    I feel that whatever the leaders have should be easily mimicked and emulated by their followers. If it is something positive and easy to emulate the leader is indeed the leader.
