“A willingness to see ourselves in perspective, and to view our problems as relatively routine, provides the emotional space to think more broadly and deeply.”

— John Engels

September 2014: Speed Traps

SEPTEMBER 1, 2014

“Apparently there is nothing that cannot happen today.”

Mark Twain

Last year, a nationally-known business leader suggested I write a comic book on leadership.  “Leaders don’t want to take the time to read a complicated book,” he said.  “Provocative, short and simple – something they can read in dribs and drabs – that would be great.”

When a leader’s attention span is short, does it reflect a fear of wasting time?  Is it an indicator of garden-variety ADD?   Or are more and more leaders simply anti-intellectual?
