Robert Kaplan, a former Goldman Sachs vice chair, talked about his new book on leadership, as well as recklessness by Wall Street executives and his affiliation with the non-partisan group No Labels. He criticized congressional members' reluctance to make difficult decisions needed to solve problems related to the economy, jobs, debt, and Social Security and Medicare. Commenting on the House-Senate impasse on passing an extension of tax cuts and unemployment benefits, he stated, “When you don’t have a clear vision for the country, what you fall back to is tactical sniping.” He also responded to telephone calls and electronic communications.
Mr. Kaplan’s book is titled What to Ask the Person in the Mirror: Critical Questions for Becoming a More Effective Leader and Reaching Your Potential. close
