Leaders know contemporary culture
This Blog Sits at the: Advent of an era? Corporate America finally gets contemporary culture?
Have you read this guy's blog? Witty, intelligent writing. It's a joy. Even when he has nothing to say he says it with panache.
Anyway, an interesting critique in the link above about why Tom Freston, former CEO of Viacom, is the former CEO of Viacom: he's out of touch with contemporary culture.
Reminds me why I started this blog: to garner the lessons in leadership, business and otherwise, from the everyday examples of pop culture around us. Primarily movies, because I watch a lot of them and want to make them some day. But yes, there's leadership in music as well, if you look.
I'd better start looking and listening! This is a call back to the roots of this blog.
