[FLR] | Why the Best Leaders Aren’t Experts

There are different styles of leaders: generalists and specialists. For example, our current Prime Minister is by nature much more of a generalist. He takes a broader view of things and relies on specialists to inform him.
 
Stephen Harper was much more of a mix, a generalist-specialist; he liked to go both deep and wide.
 
Paul Martin was much more of a specialist leader; he really liked to go deep on files.
 
Each style of leadership has their own strengths and weaknesses. Which are you? There is no better or worse type of leader. Rather, understanding how your style and work is unique from others’ an using that knowledge to your advantage is what allows you to succeed as a leader.
