Abstract/Summary This paper reports early research findings from a larger Australian study which seeks to understand leadership from the experiences of established leaders across a spectrum of endeavours such as sport, the arts, business and politics. To date there appears to be limited empirical research that has investigated the insights of Australian leaders regarding their leadership experiences, beliefs and practices. In this paper, the stories of two established leaders (a four times elected Lord Mayor and a highly successful entrepreneur) are discussed to reveal the contextual factors that influenced their thinking about leadership as well as the key values they embody as leaders. While the themes to emerge from their respective stories reveal some common features of effective leadership according to theory, some points of divergence between the leaders are highlighted.
