Leadership wisdom has been inadequately addressed until now because it has not been well‐defined or easily measured. This article explores the nature of leadership wisdom and its incorporation into the Leading Across Boundaries programme run by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain and endorsed by the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement.It will be argued that leadership wisdom is an essential component of success in a fast‐paced, changing and complex environment and three questions will be answered.1. Why should you be interested in a case study about pharmacists?2. What is leadership wisdom?3. How did we develop leadership wisdom?
