Seems that the fact that leaders are human beings and hence not perfect has been forgotten. Harvard discussed the worst mistakes leaders make.

Martin/Lyceum, you cannot learn leadership. You either have a personality that enables you to lead or you don't. If you don't the only thing you can do is learn tactics. That will enable you to, at least, lead a bit instead of just managing.

Catarina and Teepu: I don't agree with that self interest is something bad. Without your self interest, you can't do business at all. I recommend you to check out the works by Dr. Edwin A. Locke, e.g., The Prime Movers: Traits of the Great Wealth Creators, Handbook of Principles of Organizational Behavior: Indispensable Knowledge for Evidence-Based Management, and The Essence of Leadership: The Four Keys to Leading Successfully.

Yes, self interest is the worst.

Have you thought about the fact that the majority who make the mistakes outlined in the video are not leaders, but managers?

The world leader became a synonym to manager in the past when a business dictionary, in the US I believe, decided manager=leader.

The 9 worst mistakes said by the different profesionals above ( self interest, betraying trust, being certain,living up to their values,losing capacity for self doubt, arrogance, potentially getting too fast the all about themselves and trying to be something they're. and lastly the self- reflective) are all true and in some ways has their own points which is convincing . But among the 9 worst mistakes a leader can make is the SELF INTEREST, this is really a bad habit that will destroy a leader.
