I like provocative headlines and blog posts.

How about "hire a leader" instead?

There are many places where leaders can be found. Sports is certainly one (although IMHO "hire a jock" is an old school, sexist term given where jocks can be found). There are leaders in journalism, in social organizations, in leadership honoraries, in academic societies, and many other places.

I think I disagree with Tim. You don't always want leaders in every role (someone has to follow!) and frankly, it seems like presuming that everyone in a *team* sport is a good leader is an inherently silly idea!

I loved the column. :)
