Leadership and the Core Group

Valuable bit of wisdom:
. . . we can confer legitimacy on anyone but ourselves. Indeed, what people conventionally call leadership is, at bottom, the ability to get others to confer legitimacy on us--and thus to get others to put us in the core group.

I admit that posts from HBR on successive days makes me a tool. I apologize, but it is just a rare treat to find something interesting while researching an uninteresting paper.
