Faust on Leadership

One of my favorite things in the Sunday New York Times these days is the Corner Office column, which reports a bit of an interview each week on “leadership” from the perspective of a CEO.  Usually, these interviews consist not of tips from would-be management gurus, but instead anecdotes about the interviewees’ own experiences.

Last Sunday’s Corner Office column featured an educational leader for the first time:  Drew Gilpin Faust, president of Harvard.  It’s a little light on anecdote, but if you are interested in educational leadership as a phenomenon, her thoughts make for interesting reading, as much for the similarities between a large university and a large corporation as for the differences.
