…in four short columns in the FT he summarises what good and poor leadership is. He is writing about David Cameron, but his summary is wholly applicable to business leaders: the need to articulate an objective; the unsatisfied demand for leadership and the importance of aspiration…”the mere fact of having a direction, whatever it is, could be galvanising”. My only quibble is that he writes that “the idea is to clarify not what he [the PM] stands for….but where the country is going”. I disagree. It’s difficult to set direction unless you know what you stand for.
