One thought on “My Hypothesis–kentcoleslaw”

  1. I provisionally love this, Kent. Love it because the audacity of arguing that we get the worst possible leaders—so that the very systems we construct to deliver us quality leadership are doomed—but provisionally because the nature of the argument is so subjective it’s hard to imagine how you’ll quantify any of its claims.
