Panetta says Mr. Obama lacks the passion of a leader…’

….according to Edward Luce in today’s FT in a review of former Pentagon and CIA chief Leon Panetta’s new book Worthy Fights. This is interesting because passionate leadership demands an ability to connect with one’s feelings as well as an ability to express them. My experience is that business leaders often struggle with the latter. The trick is to take a risk and spit it out. What’s the worst that can happen?
