Most Spanish people would wrongly say that leadership is vision, courage, credibility, determination or even militarism or politics. At Spanish Leadership we however sincerely believe that leadership is first and foremost about people. It is about leaders releasing people to do what they need to do in the most productive and beneficial way. You cannot call yourself a leader and not have followers.
A leader´s greatest compliment and achievement is his or her followers, and followers will reflect a leader´s positive value and missions. Logically the opposite is also true. Flawed leadership – for example, the lack of integrity that, sadly, we so often associate with today´s Spain based politicians- will also reproduce itself in followers.
That is why Spanish Leadership´s motto is TEAM which stands for Together Everybody Achieves More. That is why we feature only our sportsmen above. We are proud of them. Spanish Leadership is an English speaking treble iii (Internet Ideas Incubator). It has to be in English because sadly most of our countrymen and women think that being fluent in English is not a must. They wrongly believe that someone will come to put them a red carpet to become proficient in English. All the members of Spanish leadership are native Spanish speakers. However, as a team, we bring to the table over a century of international experience in Europe, US, Asia Pacific, Africa and South America. We are all proficient in English.
Leadership is just about taking action and motivating others to do the same. Contrary to widespread belief in Spain, leadership is not just about holding a position or spouting what you believe. Most of Spain´s based people do not understand (or do not want to understand) that positions and job titles come and go. Actions and relationships are the marks of true leadership, and they last forever.
Without people there can never be leadership. People are the heart, soul and spirit of any organization. Without them there is no need for leaders. Leaders are therefore responsible to see people use their assets. They are the ones responsible for the next generation of leadership. They need to focus on what people can become, not on what they are at present. The function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
Success is a decision. You can become the leaders´ leader if you adhere to the principle that the growth and development of people is the highest skill of leadership. We want English proficient native Spanish leaders to surge in the World arena. In the fields of business, sports, research, innovation, entrepreneurialism, and charity amongst many others.

We are not a LinkedIn company. However we are firm
believers of the 2.0 world. The term "Web 2.0" was first used in January 1999 by Darcy
DiNucci, a consultant on electronic information design (information architecture). In her
article, "Fragmented Future", DiNucci wrote: 'The Web we know now, which loads into a browser window in essentially static screenfuls,
is only an embryo of the Web to come. The first glimmerings of Web 2.0 are beginning to
appear, and we are just starting to see how that embryo might develop. The Web will be
understood not as screenfuls of text and graphics but as a transport mechanism, the ether
through which interactivity happens. It will [...] appear on your computer screen, [...] on your
TV set [...] your car dashboard [...] your cell phone [...] hand-held game machines [...] maybe
even your microwave oven.'
Therefore Darcy was right. Web 2.0 is a term coined to describe web sites that use
technology beyond the static pages of earlier web sites. The term is closely associated
with Tim O'Reilly because of theO'Reilly Media Web 2.0 conference which was held in
late 2004. Although web 2.0 suggests a new version of the World Wide Web, it does
not refer to an update to any technical specification, but rather to cumulative changes in the
ways software developers and end-users use the Web.
A Web 2.0 site may allow users to interact and collaborate with each other in a social
media dialogue as creators of user-generated content in a virtual community, in contrast
to websites where people are limited to the passive viewing of content. Examples of Web
2.0 include social networking sites, blogs, wikis, video sharing sites, hosted services, web
We firmly believe that as LinkedIn is approaching 200 million users it is poised to become
the leading 2.0 professional networking site. All the retained advisory services, consulting
and publications can be done directly there in there where the high calibre of our associates
and members can be seen. At Linkedin not only we have company pages URLs but a vast
infrastructure of Groups and Subgroups which make us dominate the Internet very much as
shown in this video when LinkedIn was only 135 million users.
