Leadership Blues

Meandering in the new year
In the touchy realm of leadership
Like I pondered here
The quirks of strategy

kinds of blues
kinds of blues
Kinds of Music

Is leadership like music
With its many kinds
Some we like and some not
Music nonetheless


Are there hues to leadership
Like the Blues
Delta, Chicago
Texas and more


Are leaders like these players
Breaking norms to add colour
Like King Albert’s skilled left
Pluck righty guitar to bend our ear


How did they tick
Was there a beat, was there a meter
A turn of phrase
An emphatic pause


Are these the three C’s
Of human leadership
What would suffice
Beyond these


Happy 2014.
