I am a big fan of Mike Myatt.  Here is another reason why, from the article:

 

Here’s the thing – you can possess the greatest technical wizardry under the stars, but that doesn’t make you a leader. 

 

If you don’t care, aren’t collaborative, can’t communicate, fail to take input and feedback, and allow your hubris to overshadow your humility, you might be intelligent, but in my book you’re not very bright.

 

The really sad part of this story is how often this type of person is rewarded in a competency-based system.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 29, 2013 4:46 PM

A very interesting article that indicates what we get out of followers is really the measure of the leader. That means a rethink on hiring, developing, and promoting leaders. We want leaders not managers.

Mark Gregory , Programme Innovator @Transformation Coach's comment, April 24, 2013 5:42 PM
Prior to the global meltdown having managers was best as we needed them to manage growth. Now we strong leadership to get us out of the mess. Trouble is there are too few around in both politics and business.

Trickle-Down Feminism | Dissent Magazine

Trickle-Down Feminism | Dissent Magazine | Leadership and Leaning In | Scoop.it

"Employers have relied not just on being able to pay women less, but on specific gendered skills and qualities that they expected from female workers. Moreton, in her book To Serve God and Wal-Mart, detailed the way that the retail behemoth exploited the specific skills of Southern white Christian women going to work outside the home for the first time as much as their willingness to work for little pay because they’d never been paid before. The tradition of service that those women grew up with kept them working in low-wage jobs and made it hard for them to see the gender discrimination happening before their eyes—until, that is, a few of them sued."
