Example text

These are originals, not copies. My paradigm, then, is leaders, not theories about leaders, and leaders functioning in the real world, rather than in some artificial setting. I deliberately chose people who are not only accomplished, but multitalented: a writer who’s a CEO, a scientist who heads a foundation, a lawyer who served in the cabinet, a young man who’s on his third career. They are all people whose lives have made a difference—thoughtful, articulate, and reflective. Because I would argue that our culture is currently dominated and shaped by business, almost a third of this group of leaders are in business.

Things do not happen according to plan, and they are not reducible to tidy models. We persist in grasping at neat, simple answers, when we should be questioning everything. Wallace Stevens, a renowned poet who was also vice president of an insurance company, put it nicely in his poem, “Six Significant Landscapes”: Rationalists, wearing square hats, Think, in square rooms, Looking at the floor, Looking at the ceiling. They confine themselves To right-angled triangles. If they tried rhomboids, Cones, waving lines, ellipses— As, for example, the ellipse of the half-moon— Rationalists would wear sombreros.

But our shortcomings as individuals are symptomatic of a much larger problem. If it is fair to say that all too often our leading citizens seem incapable of taking control of their various domains, it is even fairer to add that the world itself is out of control. The changes in the last generation have been so radical that it seems even in business as if the world plays soccer while America plays football. It’s not just that the rules changed—it’s a different game. For this reason, before people can learn to lead, they must learn something about this strange new world.
