I read a fascinating bio on Larry Page, the co-founder and CEO of Google. The story goes that for many years he was “anti-management”. After all, Google went to great lengths to only hire the most talented software engineers, and he thought that having a layer of supervisors to manage them and prioritize their work was an unnecessary cost and impediment to getting work done. He reasoned that Google’s team of highly talented people should be able to self-organize and manage themselves.

Lately the question of, “What is great leadership? has been coming into my world.  It's a question that has never been more important in the business world. We are now replacing low-paid manual labor and processing, with a smarter, more skilled, younger workforce. This is great in some ways, but also the new generation is far more likely to move from company to company than older generations.
