Luke’s Law of Leadership

I’ve formulated the following observation from my strategy and organizational culture work with organizations, particularly organizations in higher education.  I’m calling it Luke’s Seventh Law.  It seems like it’s my seventh law.  I’m not sure what the other six are right now, but I’m sure I’ll remember eventually.

The amount of true, effective leadership exerted in an organization is inversely proportional to number of times the word leadership is used by those at the top.
