Commentary on A Lack of Leadership Often Has “Unintended Results”
Leadership has been described as the “process of social influence in which one person can enlist the aid and support of others in the accomplishment of a common task". Many have tried to define leadership and the qualities that make a Leader. One critical factor to recognize is the lack of leadership and the unintended results caused by this lack.
This paper will reflect on my observations and opinions as to current situations and conditions in the orthopaedic health community as a result of a lack of leadership.
