How did we get here? The firm changed the way it thought about leadership. Leadership used to be about ideas, setting an example and doing the right thing. Today, if you make enough money for the firm (and are not currently an ax murderer) you will be promoted into a position of influence.
I do wonder how we did get here too. Its quite a fair bit of distance from what the owners wanted... cherished and expected the firm to stand for. Any firm for that matter. Such a come down. Indicative of the current age or is this something more fundamental to the levels that we as a society have fallen?
