As I’m entering the house I hear, “The movements around these political candidates are a direct result…”
The talking heads on TV are analyzing the latest developments on the campaign trail.
All this talk about politics and leadership made me think of an article I’ve read.
Bob Anderson, a facilitator of leadership workshops describes the 5 stages of leadership:
Adolescent and immature.
Shaped by the outside expectations; top-down control.
They lead from deeply held values.
Built for complexity. It sees wholes, not merely parts.
This type is not just rare but exceedingly so.
If you are one of them, your employees are lucky indeed.
Hmm. I wonder what stage our politicians are most likely to be?
I go to the TV and change the channel as I’m warning Sunny and Flipper,
“You shouldn’t watch this while you are eating — it’s bad for your digestion!”
Flipper’s response is a fanned-tail and a beautiful whistling sound.
(Not sure if she is happy that I’m home or she’s cheering for one of the political candidates : )
Thanks for visiting.
