When I did "Accidental Conversations" in 2002 I did a ton of research on the applications of quantum physics in the understanding of organizations. What I learned was that when we get down to the essence of "matter" all we find are information, relationships and change. If leaders love to make things "matter" these are their focus: information, relationships and change. Everything else flows from these essential qualities of life.
Leadership is not about managing people. It's about engaging information, relationships and change. Leaders who get this tend to be trusted, effective and powerful.
