Time Magazine’s 2006 List of Leaders
Time Magazine published its 2006 list of the most influential people. While there were leaders in perhaps all five categories, I was most interested in the categories of “Leaders & Revolutionaries” but also found leaders and examples in leadership in the categories of “Scientists & Thinkers,” Heroes & Pioneers,” and Builders & Titans.”time 100.jpg

“Leaders & Revolutionaries” spanned politics, religion, and business. Some of these people I have noted in posts on Leadernotes. Some of those listed surprised me. Most inspired me. Some disgusted me.

I did not separate Leaders from Revolutionaries – they often cross. The definition of a revolutionist is a radical supporter of political or social revolution. Certainly there are a few revolutionaries included below.  For good or bad, peace or war, love or hate, they influence millions.

The Time article for each person was often written by a contemporary rather than Time staff. Those listed as “Leaders & Revolutionaries” included

Thanks to Hasan for finding the typo next to McCain. Your are correct, he is the Senator from Arizona. Maybe spending all weekend in the 112 degree of Phoenix, AZ caused me to make the typo. Your catch made me look at everything and with all the links on this post I found some broken ones. Thanks for reading and editing!
