One aspect apparent when examining the "DNA of Failure" of leadership/management is the lack of definition and consensus about what they actually are! The second is how out-of-date most 'leadership' and 'management practices' actually are ... and the third is the lack of desire of people in 'power' to change them (but to drive/change other people instead) ...
So let's start with the 21st Century definition I use with next generation leaders:
* 21st Century Leadership is an 'Art' and about 'leading' People
Moving on further ...
* 21st Century Leadership = Inspiring People + Challenging People + Supporting People + Developing People
Given these definitions, are any politicians actually 'leading'? are any of politicians 'managing'? ... Perhaps we have to go back to way out-of-date 20th Century definitions of leadership and management ...
Traditional 'Management' = Tell People + Manage People + Drive Results ( = Transactional 'Leadership')
Are any of them doing this instead? ... if they are, don't expect any long term success coming from here ... just more Poweromics*, frustration, failure, and lots more ways to waste/steal tax payers money.

* Poweromics = People using position and power for their own personal gain, based on poor moral values, self interest and greed.
