Lecture: Leadership, liberty and the crisis of authority


In this insightful and humorous lecture, delivered in Australia on 15 November 2011, Professor Furedi examines how leadership has become commodified and professionalised – now available for sale in hard cover rather than being a personal trait hard-won through experience and responsibility. He also looks at the ramifications for freedom when management is by procedures manual rather than personal risk-taking and judgement.
