Enough with the shortcomings of SF leadership. It's boring, sucks energy, and distracts from bigger issues.


The authors seem stuck with a model of leadership that says, we have nothing but problems and it is the job of leaders to fix them.

Besides its false premises, its a model that sends a message of powerlessness, generates defensiveness, reinforces the hierarchy and separation it seeks to change. It asks people to take a backward look to yesterday's causes instead of going directly toward their dream.
