When I received my B.Sc. degree at BYU in August of 1983 (Chemical Engineering), I was thrilled to have the commencement speaker be none other than Dr. Hugh Nibley, a fellow member of my ward, the Provo Ninth Ward, and one of the most fascinating and intelligent men I have met. The speech he delivered was thought-provoking and controversial, and not terribly considerate of those in the School of Business. I my have mentioned it before, but here it is, courtesy of FARMS: “Leaders to Managers: The Fatal Shift.”
I think he has some profound points. My, how we need more leaders in this world drowning in a flood of management.
