By Richard Wilson , October 2013
The hidden revolution in leadership and change
Richard Wilson's report argues that developmental psychology can explain why our leaders in politics, banking and across the media continue to let us down. The report proposes that, in order to meet challenges like unemployment, climate and obesity, we need a fundamental rethink in how leadership is taught in our universities and organisations.
The report outlines a new type of leader, the anti-hero, a person who "creates change through transcending traditional heroic virtues, and whose impact is often unnoticed but nevertheless vital". It also includes a series of exercises for readers to try.
This report was launched at the RSA in October 2013, and speakers alongside Richard included Clore Social's Dame Mary Marsh and RSA Chief Executive Matthew Taylor.
