Listening and Leadership

Just seen Gordon on saying that he will "listen and lead". If that's his attitude then no wonder he failed, he is clueless about leadership.

Great leaders have a vision which they sell to those around them, be they military leaders, CEO's or politicians, and convince them people to follow them. Great leaders don't wander round asking people what they want and then try to convince them that they are the best to deliver it; we all reason that anyone Tom, Dick or Harry could do that.

This is also where Cameron will fail as well.

We need a real leader with vision and balls to go against the consensus.
