In an interview, Global Business Partnership director Noel M. Tichy talked about his career. On his books on leadership, his ideas develop from going out in the world and spending time with real leaders as they struggle to transform their organizations. It is in trying to help leaders make change happen that he has learned the most. On what are the biggest changes he's seen throughout his career, he thinks there has always been good and bad leaders. When organizations fail, they fire their leaders quicker than 30 years ago. In the last decade, they have leaders who view themselves as the head teachers. He thinks it is vital to teach good judgment. He wants the next generation of MBA students to come out with a peaceful view of the environment and human capital. They have a responsibility to play a major role in these issues.
