Geeks and Geezers

A long time ago, I read Harvard Geeks and Geezers: How Eras, Values and Defining Moments Shape Leaders (by Warren G. Bennis and Robert J. Thomas)

"Big four" qualities of leadership:

1. Adaptive capacity
2. Engaging others through shared meaning
3. A distinctive voice
4. Integrity

The book also stressed the power and influence of the crucible, and it create exceptional leaders.
