Something Wrong with This Definition of Leadership

aung-san-suu-kyi_416x416Fortune Magazine has published its list of the World’s Greatest Leaders.  Without going into troubling issues about how US-centric it all is and what it uses as its definition of leadership and in writing about it  Alan Murray writes about the person who is placed at number one,  “Amazon’s Jeff Bezos. His company got pummeled in a New York Times story last year depicting Amazon as a sort of high-tech sweat-shop, where the pressure caused workers to break down at their desks in tears. But leadership comes in various flavors, and the Bezos strain is yielding world-changing results.” So leadership involves running sweat shops! I don’t think so.  That is the usual dictatorship that is mistaken for leadership.  I have used a picture of real leader here.
