Raquel TorrentLa noción de una persona ungida por los dioses que tiene capacidad para arrastrar a las masas hacia donde desea, es un concepto arraigado como mito entre la mayoría de la población con el que todo estudioso del Liderazgo se encuentra una y otra vez. Por más que esté muy extendida, es una idea falsa. Al estudiar el concepto de Liderazgo nos encontramos una y otra vez pruebas empíricas que demuestran la falsedad de esta aseveración.
