Business Consulting For The 21st Century Via A Holistic & Intelligent Approach

What does leadership look like?

Answered => “What is the symbol of leadership globally?” on Quora.

=> My answer…

Thanks for asking.

I’m curious, do you mean an established icon/picture or is the idea to develop a new one?

That said, to put it lightly, international visual communication is tough. Different icons, colors and individuals mean different things in different cultures. Things like stars, the sun, fire, lightning and the globe (e.g. AT&T’s logo) all have connotations of power and strength. They strike me as being universal. But perhaps not.

While those are not necessarily leadership per se, it’s a step in the right direction. Many icons / symbols are often the byproduct of marketing, as a communication of the brand behind it. For example, would the Facebook “F” or the Twitter birdy (note: I believe the “T” has been retired) have meaning without what stands behind they logos/icons?

Yes, yes. Agreed. Logos and icons are not one in the same. Hopefully this helps nudge the discussion forward.
