Toil and Trouble

It's not you, it's me. Well, it certainly isn't us.

Have you ever noticed that sometimes those we label as 'great leaders' seem to be in the right place at the right time? Well, that's what we're talking about today!

How often do you question the 'brilliance' behind 'great leaders'? How many 'quotes' can we use in a single 'show'? Is it possible these 'great leaders' are more a (by)product of time and place (i.e. culture and environment) rather than of inherent skill or ability? We've always said those 'leaders' who found themselves in those positions obviously knew what to do in thsoe situations, but the truth is, had anyone taken Bill Gates' place at that fateful meeting with IBM execs, would Microsoft be what it is today? Some say 'no', we say 'eh..maybe.' Join us today as we look at a different (and albeit somewhat cynical) view of leadership that we believe is getting overlooked more and more with each new book that is written.
