"Asked whether he is more worried about the state of the leadership industry, or the state of leadership itself, Prof Pfeffer says he is not concerned about either. One of his depressing conclusions is that leaders and those who write about them — the former because they are self-interested narcissists, the latter because their misguided preaching is so popular — will continue to do fine. Instead, he says his concern is for “the human beings who have truncated careers and career derailments, and who work in places where they are literally exposed to conditions that are as toxic as second-hand smoke”."

It does seem like job satisfaction depends a lot on quality of the boss.
