We both were agreeing on some of the principles you can read in many (recent) books from Druker’s Effective Executive to Good to Great. Executives / Managers / Companyes, who want to lead in their business, have to focus on people, empower best performers, be humble, avoid command and control, respect people, lead by examples …
Moreover we noticed that (many?) successful (Italian) executives are not exactly a reference on those principles: they are arrogant, delegate just if obliged, tough with people, unrespectful … and very firm and pushy.
So if the first is better, why the second is more spread?
