This chapter focuses on capacities from a dual perspective. It presents the theory and measures of the leadership capacity of spaces. The chapter outlines the different importance of capacity of spaces when it comes to leadership. Also considered are the capabilities needed for leaders to transcend spatial boundaries. The chapter highlights actions leaders undertake to transform places, but also the role space plays in the transformation. A link with Chapters 3 and 4 highlights what the space leaders interact with looks like when they are done with their action on it. Aspects of comparison include the ability of leaders to contain challenges and uncertainty as well as the function of spaces to house leaders. Profiles of leaders like Barrosso, Juncker, Kaberuka, and Wolfensohn are used to illustrate main themes.
