We are in the very bottom of a well without been able to imagine the fathom of it! We are all interested in finding confidence about jobs, about our savings, about our possessions, about the future of our children (never admit that we worry about ours!). We seek advice from our managers, we try to identify what the big financial organizations forsee, we try to understand what our leaders will do (whether teachers, directors, CEOs, priests, you name it).
But is it really about leaders or about us? What is the real job of leaders?
