Star Trek fans know Captain James Kirk’s extremely successful stint as captain of the Starship Enterprise was due to his leadership nous. But what, if anything, can more Earth-bound leaders learn from his style of command?

    I like the Captain Kirk analogy. You could add a few more attributes like acting the role, use of force only when necessary and so diplomacy first. I doubt many of today's HR professionals even saw this show. Sir Isaac Brock also displayed many of these attributes but in a true setting, with little resources and only his top notch leadership skills to depend on.
