Christy Clark shuffled staff in the premier’s office again today. However, when the critical fault is at the top, shuffling of underlings will do no good. Any Liberal who wants to continue a career in provincial politics had better convince colleagues of that conclusion or study the severance and pension package that Kevin Krueger suddenly found attractive.
A few years ago, Wharton School of business named 25 highly influential entrepreneurs and while assembling that list, they identified eight attributes of successful leaders:
- Able to build a strong corporate culture;
- Willing to cater to the under-served;
- Able to spot potential winners or faint trends before rivals;
- Adept at building competitive advantages;
- Excellent at managing and building their organization’s brand;
- Fast learners;
- Skilled at managing risk.
Of those qualities, how would you rate Christy Clark? I rate her zero for eight but I’m willing to hear arguments that prove that score wrong. Christy Clark’s only real skill seems to be spending like a drunken lottery winner, doling out contracts to friends and hired guns who she hopes might improve her personal brand. It’s a loathsome performance that proves the collective shallowness of Liberal MLAs in British Columbia.
