A Failure of Nerve: Leadership in the Age of the Quick FixGuest reviewer, via The Good Book Stall
Airport bookstalls groan under a heavy load of leadership titles, most of which sell technique. Rabbi Friedman’s book is different. It is about what is going on inside leaders in the age of the quick fix. The lemmings are scared by the pace of change and fear of the future. Onward they go, their little legs carrying them as fast as they can scamper. Left to their own devices, the little darlings will choose, with all the authority democracy confers the fastest sleekest lemming. He's the obvious leader of the pack, isn't he? They're bound to, because when they draw up lists of criteria against which to set candidates, he's the winner by a long nose. Edwin H. Friedman, religious leader and expert on family systems, says, "No!" The leader they actually need, rather than want, is the shy skinny lemming who can differentiate himself securely from the anxieties and operational habits of the others. Unfortunately Friedman died before completing his book, but his wife did her best to supply notes that flesh out the "so what?" second section. The main thesis of the book, however, is original and compelling — essential wisdom for anyone called to any form of leadership.
