Where Have All The Leaders Gone? by Lee Iacocca with Catherine Whitney

Current events can easily dismay.  It seems that the world is coming apart at the basting stitches Where and no one slows down long enough to consider solutions.  The leaders of our countries and corporations reaffirm the cluelessness.  They rely on superficial rhetoric and can’t, or won’t act on things that really could make a difference.  They’d have to take a solid critical look at themselves and be willing to listen to good advice – say, Lee Iacocca’s.

Iacocca, former CEO of Chrysler, makes a pretty good stab at dispensing said advice.  In an easily-read style, he outlines his ideas on correcting the ills of the nation and world, using his core idea of what makes leaders, and why the ones we have fall way short.  Most of it, to me, sounds like common sense.  What I like about Iacocca’s approach is that all of that he proposes sounds doable and actually (dare I say it) practical.  He levels his critical aim at the government, corporate, and individual alike, and challenges all to start making a difference.

Read it and draw your own conclusions.  And while you’re at it, try this one to fire up your vehemence as well:
