Leadership?

I’m Johnnie Moore, and I help people work better together

It’s interesting how often Rudy Giuliani gets cited by books about leadership. He’s invoked as if he’s an unarguable archetype. For me this highlights a deep flaw running through most of what’s written about leadership, which I think is a displacement of a whole bundle of feelings. We invoke heroes to absolve ourselves of responsbility, or as a confused effort to take control.

Anyway, whether you agree with the points made in this YouTube or not, it certainly should make you pause before buying into hero worship.
