New Guest Post: The leader and the moment

June 30, 2008, 8:35 PM UTC

To get a take on how Barack Obama plans to fix the economy, you can read my colleague Nina Easton’s terrific story, as well as an interview with Obama and John McCain, in the current issue of Fortune.

For another take on Obama, you can read the new guest post, “The leader and the moment,” by Harvard Business School professor Nancy Koehn. She wrote an insightful piece about Obama that cleverly avoids even mentioning the Presidential candidate’s name.

I’ve come to know Nancy (who has neither worked for nor given money to the Obama campaign, by the way) through our Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit and through her writing. Whether she’s assessing billion-dollar brands or entrepreneurial icons such as Oprah Winfrey or breakout Presidential candidates, she understands how power operates.
