When I was in junior high, my principal called me into his office to explain that I wasn’t “being enough of a leader” at school. I insisted I didn’t know what he meant. He grew increasingly frustrated, and we ended the meeting agreeing to disagree. I’m pretty sure at least one of us is vindicated by a New Yorker article that suggests that, just maybe, leadership itself is overrated. After all, we’re far more enthusiastic about the idea of leadership than about our actual leaders. Or as Joshua Rothman writes: “The glorification of leadership makes existing leaders seem disappointing by comparison, leading to an ever more desperate search for ‘real’ leaders to replace them.” Shut Up and Sit Down. Why the leadership industry rules. (I’ve got like 162 browser tabs open. So who’s leading now? Boom!)
