The struggle to understand leadership

A very thoughtful article about our struggle to understand leadership is available from the NYTimes. With the provocative title of "Shut Up and Sit Down," author Joshua Rothman raises questions about the contemporary cases with which we struggle (i.e. Donald Trump) versus the long-term critique provided through the storytelling and scholarly analyses available to us. Rothman concludes his article by writing "A sense of perspective may be among the most critical leadership qualities. For better or worse, however, it's the one we ask our leaders to hide." Interesting observation that sometimes many of us just want an answer and the security it provides rather than leadership that reflects a depth of perspective and engages all of us in the search for more humane and sustainable living.
