Lee Iacocca was born in 1924. He knows a thing or two about leadership and at the end of the Bush presidency wrote a book thundering Where are the New Leaders . In the book he defines what he refers to as the 9C’s of Leadership

Curiosity
Creativity
Communication
Character
Conviction
Charisma
Competence

And hasn’t the currency of that word “change” been devalued after a US election during which it was promised by everyone? But equally, at a time of unprecedented financial turmoil and when the tectonic plates of geopolitics are shifting uncertainly, can anyone doubt that change, and specifically, new leadership, is what we need most?
