Leadership in dynamic times takes a radically different perspective to the traditional way of "teaching" leadership. In contrast to the usual advice to acquire more and more skills, this scientific view of leadership instead focuses on how to gather influence and power by working with, and harnessing, the resources and abilities of others. This not only exponentially increases the power that the leader bears, but also makes them more agile and flexible. Once the leader realizes the hidden power of people and networks, they can quickly adapt to new situations, and tap resources that are situationally needed. By not making irreversible investments in skills at inevitably become obsolete, leaders are able to evolve continually when complex systems change, often unpredictably.
