Two recent stories:

“Inadequate training, poor leadership and a lack of pilot proficiency are to blame for a¬†deadly collision between a United States Marine Corps fighter jet and tanker aircraft off Japan, the Marines said this week.”

“There’s been a significant breakdown in the corporate governance at Blue Cross,” Causey said at a news conference, calling the actions of both Dr. Patrick Conway and the Blue Cross board “disturbing.”

This won’t be the last time there will be a breakdown in leadership….one would believe that there are lessons learned from both these incidents….after-all they are highly regarded organizations.

The Marine Corps event more than likely resulted in career-ending actions. In the case of the Blue Cross situation, the CEO resigned (or was asked to resign) today.
