Spatial and Temporal Issues and the Role of Moments

  • Cristina D’Alessandro
  • Frannie Léautier


This chapter brings out the concept of time and its interaction with space, and how certain leadership characteristics stand out or are shaped by these moments. Illustrations are made of what is common and what is different about individual leaders and their relation to space. Profiles are contrasted in the special cases of leadership in a moment. The chapter draws on examples from Joyce Banda and her assumption of the presidency following the passing of Bingu wa Mutharika, and Obiageli Ezekwesili, who went from minister in Nigeria to vice president at the World Bank, and emerged on the global scene as an activist against Boko Haram with the #BringBackOurGirls campaign.
