This tickled me.
No leader wants to be considered ‘stupid’. I wonder what experience led Charles Bukowski to this quote. Could it be a leader of people… with no people- sense?
Self- doubt happens, I mentioned that in a previous post. That’s not a problem, it can aid one to have a level of humility. It’s the leaders who may fall into the second half of the quote that concern me. They probably create chaos, unpleasantness and disorder as well as turn others off heading into leadership, or… the could in fact inspire others to be better leaders, those that feel they can do better.
