The leader is often imagined as an individual alone in command and, for this reason, loneliness appears to be a characteristic feature of this figure. In reality, it is others - and how one relates to them - the most distinctive element of the leader. In fact, contemporary leadership, immersed in a liquid, changeable and uncertain world, can fully realize itself and fulfill its task exclusively through the relationships that the leader is able to create and cultivate with the rest of the world. In this perspective, therefore, the others become an essential source of knowledge and a decisive push towards the emergence and definition of the leader, bridging his gaps and maximizing his qualities.
