The Leadership Disaster: A Matter of Choice
List Price: 17.95
Wars, financial collapses, crumbling infrastructures, poverty, hunger, and business bankruptcies are usually caused by dysfunctional power holders who are often seriously flawed human beings. The irony of all this: we give them the power to engineer such disasters. Voters, Boards of Directors and other selectors often transfer great power and wealth to flawed individuals whose defects were unnoticed or ignored. Subsequently we seem surprised that we’ve made those sorry choices. But a candidate’s true character is not so easily disguised and serious researchers probing prior behavior discern those who lack judgment, courage, authenticity, decency, loyalty, tact, integrity, sensitivity, etc. Failing this leads to…failings. Many wise men have studied leaders worthy of the name and also those broken individuals who break whatever they touch. This text, like a grand seminar, puts it all together to help us choose between true leaders and the defective, destructive power holder. The choice is yours, mine, ours.
