“… techniques designed to change the natural forces of life generally are ineffective and often burn out the ‘technician.’ … It goes without saying that when continued efforts by CEOs, managers, and administrators are producing little or not progress, they are probably swimming against a tide. … [Ideally] leaders function as the immune system of the institutions they lead – not because they ward off enemies, but because they supply the ingridients for the system’s integrity.” (Friedman, 230-231).
