This was my attempt to provide some additional perspective to the debate about the relevancy and effectiveness of the war colleges. I wanted to share some insights from having been a student and faculty member in the system of professional military education as well as a faculty member and administrator in non-military settings. I hope it provokes some discussion, especially with regard to policies and procedures relating to the faculty.

Toxic Leaders Interview conducted by George Reed, of Leadership Studies at the USD - YouTube

Toxic Leaders Interview conducted by George Reed, Associate Professor of Leadership Studies at the University of San Diego

Via Susan Bainbridge, AlGonzalezinfo
george_reed's insight:

Jean Lipman-Blumen is a wonderful person and a world-class scholar. This interview was part of a graduate course where the students prepared the questions and introductions while I played the host. They read her work before the class. We later turned off the lights and camera and engaged in a wonderful dialogue.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, April 18, 3:16 AM

This a wonderful interview, once you get to it.  The introduction is long  but you can skip ahead around 2:30 to get to the interview.  


I truly admire Dr. Lipman-Blumen and totally agree with her views on what the media causes and her perspective on why toxic leaders get ahead. 


One of my favorite parts is when she asks the audience how many of them have experienced a toxic leader and the majority of the audiences raises the hands. 


Long but worth the time!
