    I wrote a leadership dissertation, back in the Stone Age.

    I think it’s fair to say that no one familiar with the academic literature on leadership thinks that anything in the Leadership Industry is anything but hokum.

    On the other hand, if any of us could make the money that the gurus are making . . . well, I don’t think we have to worry about that happening.

    The first link claims that Facebook COO Sheryl Sandburg was miseducated. No, she knew what she was doing, because Harvard Business School trained her to do a certain job. Education had/has nothing to do with Facebook’s corruption. The functionaries who run that place are trained to know how to fulfill their satrap role. Being well read and knowledgeable of a large inventory of ideas isn’t required in a corporate boardroom. This here blog proves that..
