Replying to LO13348 and others in this thread:

Your email brought to my mind Castello and Henricks' comment ("Executives
as action learners", 1991) about traditional executive leadership:

"Strong leadership can be defined by its suspicion of natural harmonies,
of spontaneous and lasting solidarities. Its greatest fear is of loss of
self, of invasion of the boundaries of the self. Self examination and
unfettered curiosity are at best a di straction from the task at hand, at
worst potentially subversive. Lateral thinking and brainstorming are hard
to control and distrusted. Identity and meaning are found in the position
and status and action in the outside world."
