The Tragic Gap

Jessica Lawrence presenting “On leading” from PopTech. Many thanks to John Maeda for sharing on one of our internal leadership blogs.

It’s a video well worth watching. A quote I particularly enjoyed:

For those of us who are overcome with visions of what’s wrong and how it could be made right, we often find ourselves in positions of leadership because at least at first we can’t stand that gap between what is and what could be, a space that educator Parker Palmer calls “the tragic gap.”

If you want to hear Parker Palmer explain the tragic gap in more detail, read this interview.
