Abstract

Purpose

To look at what we do, as hosts.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper looks at what we do as hosts, what it means to lead and leadership as engagement.

Findings

Host leadership offers an alternative. Leadership seems to put the focus on the leader. The authors think this is a mistake. Leading is about a relationship – between the leader and the others.

Originality/value

Host leadership is a natural way to take a leading position, in a manner that draws in others. This builds engagement, leading to performance and results.
