The notions of “leadership” and “mathematics” are seldom mentioned together in conversation. Yet there are mathematicians who choose to be in, or inadvertently find themselves in, positions of management and leadership. These scenarios can arise in both in academia and in industry. But is it even possible for a mathematician to lead effectively? How do we reconcile our training in axiomatised mathematics with the interpersonal dynamics and social considerations that we must deal with as leaders? There is much more to leadership than bean-counting and number-crunching.
