To Create Change, Leadership Is More Important Than Authority

Greg Satell, E L U S A, Apr 30, 2014
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Change the word 'change' to 'learning' and you have a good account of why autonomy, rather than control, is essential in education. "Control is an illusion and always has been an illusion.  It is a Hobbesian paradox that we cannot enforce change unless change has already occurred.  Higher status—or even a persuasive presentation full of facts—is of limited utility. The lunatics run the asylum, the best we can do as leaders is empower them to run it right."
