Stroup on Leadership
Jim Stroup, who is always thought-provoking, on leadership. An excerpt from a must-read post; one that I'll be pondering while revising one of my leadership workshops:
It is more than possible – even reasonable, given the evidence – to argue, as Peter Drucker broadly hinted, that the concept of individual leadership as described and promoted by the modern leadership movement for employment in contemporary business and other organizations is, essentially, a fraud. The intent of this current series, certainly, has been to present the case that it is at the very least an unfortunately ill-conceived distinction that has a distorting, and usually destructive, influence on modern organizational dynamics.
