It won’t be long now. Today, Donald Trump becomes “leader of the free world.”
Might even be a tougher job than running a staff of journalists.
It’s a situation that got me wondering: Should I be studying the President-elect’s approach to leadership? Could his style help the women and men who manage newsrooms and other staffs be more effective?
The answer, I think, is mostly no.
I shy away from bombast and self-promotion, believe in telling the truth, admit my mistakes and much prefer gathering facts to simply acting on my instincts.
