I watched K19 The Widowmaker today with my lovely bride. It really made me think about leadership and in fact it upset me, especially thinking about modern leaders. Enron leadership! Why should we follow that? The plot focuses on the dynamic between two leaders – the one is really demanding and full of ego and the other is relational and mentions family in every other sentence. Ambition meets Shepherd. Captain Relational stays loyal to Captain Ego (remember the context is a Russian submarine during the cold war) and in the end they are best buds. The movie subverts the attention away from Captain Ego’s initial sucky decisions and ends with a mushy scene of camaraderie. Jesus’ words in Matthew 22:26 Not so with you ring in my ears.
