This is an impressive piece of journalism, and it reveals what I see as a solid executive style by Obama. That’s especially significant due to his relative lack of prior executive experience.
What’s to like?
- Acknowledging when someone you disagree with is right
- Not blaming people and instead focusing on systems
- Willingness to listen and be flexible in approach while maintaining constancy of goals
Not a bad collection of attributes. We could all of us do worse.
