Business school and “leadership” studies are conduits through which students learn the vocabulary to use for succeeding at the expense of others while becoming indoctrinated to the belief that personal success is the product of solely internal factors.
It is the pedagogical line between accepting ones fate as a cog and seeing oneself as a cog that may become a pulley.
Even the very top echelon must hand down an ideology of making it to the very top–it’s a means if reifying there own status and position, and exerts power through a myth of potential success and personal improvement to keep their subordinates (still very much members of the upper echelons) at bay.
What’s amazing is that this is taught in schools. But, who’s funding them, right?
