It’s sad because the emptiness in the mind cannot be compensated for with a big billboard. Mediocre leaders are the most insecure people, they put their faces on large billboards where everyone can see them because for them leadership is a crown on their wounded ego.
They put their faces on the cover of school books but fail to put books in the school libraries. Insecure leaders will do everything to remind the people that they are the leaders partly because they themselves don’t believe that they are the leaders. In the quest to hide their insecurities, these leaders become defensive and arrogant. They cannot be advised in the presence of other human beings.
They can’t be criticized by anyone below them as a matter of fact you can’t even make a joke about them. They fear correction and public criticism because it exposes their internal deficiencies. Insecure leaders are the weakest but they hide this weakness by acting tough.
