The Rosetta Probe and the New Era of Spacefarer Leadership

I guess you’ve been seeing all the news about the Rosetta probe that has now just rendezvoused with the comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. To do that it had to travel 4 billion miles over a period of 10 years, and make several gravity-assisted flybys of several planets in an incredibly convoluted series of space maneuvers . What’s the odds that you c...

Serena Williams and the End of Leadership

Did you see Serena Williams flame out at the French Open? So what was that all about? Leadership is a phase in one’s life. You start it, do it and then finish it. How do you prepare for its end? There’s a gazillion books and articles on leadership ( including my own ). They all tell you how to do it better. But they don’t tell you about that one. H...

Is Irrationality a Key Leadership Trait? Donald Sterling and Vladimir Putin

I can’t get used to all the reporting on Donald Sterling. The media have gone to town on it. He’s a bad guy no doubt; but there's even worse. How about the unspeakable and truly despicable Abubakar Shekau, the leader of Bok Haram, if you want the lowest villain of them all? Nonetheless this got me to thinking (again) about the nature of leadership....

When do You Need a Cowboy Reserve? The Cases of General Motors and Malaysian Airlines

I got to thinking about all this recently, what first with the unhappy event on MH370, and then the ignition lock saga at General Motors. Both were crises, in their own particular way. And both were badly handled. The question that arises for me is: how can smart leaders in good companies and organizations make such a massive screw-up of a crisis e...

Does Your Leader Have Substance - or Just Style?

How do you distinguish between leadership style and substance? First-time leaders usually don't understand how closely they are being watched and that even the smallest signals count. That means insubstantial styles and actions also. See my article in Warren Bennis' Leadership Excellence
