Leadership & Management

Leadership in an Age of Wolves

"Leadership in an Age of Wolves" is a parable about a college senior, Jeff, who struggles with his friend's characterization of society operating by two dictums: might makes right, and, the many serve the few. Home for winter break, Jeff looks for evidence as to his friend's assertions. Jeff's search culminates during a cribbage match with his grandfather. Jeff's grandfather shares the creation story of God's great experiment "Sheep, Herders, Wolves" as the two discuss what motivates people, who holds the power, what leadership is truly about, and why leadership matters so much.
