Andy Stern
Labor leader

Andy Stern

Andy Stern is president of the two-million member Service Employees International Union (SEIU), the fastest-growing union in North America.

Successful Operating Style

I think the president established a successful operating style to accomplish his agenda. His leadership team took real responsibility, risk, and stayed focused. They were devoted to their ideas, had a clear agenda, and used all avenues to accomplish them.

The obvious drawback was on many issues they were more ideological than results driven and were not adaptable or able to make changes based on feedback.

Yes they were focused and yes they were determined and yes they were focused but down the line on everything THEY WERE WRONG.

As far as taking responsibility, when are Cheney and Rove going to take the responsibility for revealing Vallerie Plame's as a CIA agent? When is the administration going to take responsibilty for anything.

It is remarkable that even in this education depleted country that the POST is able to find so many columnists that have as much insight as a brain dead coma victim.

Everything but the real responsibility part, unless planning an exit strategy to the tune of $700 billion counts (still waiting on the pardons).
