The trouble with lists.................

................of leadership "bests and worsts", is that they are just snap-shots in time.  John E. Smith points to this list from Fast Company and then he asks some interesting questions.

Me thinks Fast Company's bias is showing.  Also, the absence from the list of anyone whose day job is located in Washington D. C. is interesting.  The history major in me thinks that making judgments from snap-shots in time can be a risky proposition.  For instance, shouldn't we wait a few years, or decades, before deciding that the recent decisions of Angela Merkel make her a great leader.  Important on the world stage, yes.  Great?  Let's wait and see.
