ABSTRACT
The article describes competencies of leadership as recommended by researchers and actual business leaders. It presents a thematic review of talks given by business leaders to students attending a course entitled "Opportunities for Leadership in Organizations." These themes were compared with articles in leadership and leadership development to determine the convergence of business leaders' advice and current theory. It shows that a high level of convergence between what leaders at the top of many large organizations say is important to excellence in leadership and research supporting their comments.
