Follow the Yellow Brick Rd

I’ve been dipping into Adventures in Missing the Point again and enjoying what McLaren and Campolo have to say. I was re-reading the chapter on leadership. TC righty points out that Leadership style will vary with who you are and what is needed in terms of leadership at that moment BUT I rather liked this idea from BM.
He refers to The Wizard of Oz and uses The Wizard and Dorothy as two contrasting styles …. Dorothy being a more culturally relevant style than the Wizard (CEO) one.
