Laurie Hawn has a fine piece on leadership over at Strong and Free. As usual he nails it. The essence of the article is:
Leadership is not just communicating and giving direction. It is being there and being seen to be there, in person and in charge, if humanly possible. It was, and those being led expect it and miss it, when it doesn't happen. As capable and qualified as deputies may be, no real leader wants to be anywhere but "there", when things go wrong. Paul Martin was not there."

I could not agree more. Read the whole thing.
