The rise and fall of an industry

Schools (public and private) face a wave of retirements in the decade to come.

A conversation on generational conflict at the Drucker Exchange points at a teaching from Peter Drucker on declining industries: “The first sign of decline of an industry is loss of appeal to qualified, able and ambitious people.”

I wonder how the Merlyns of today will find and train those who will also devote their lives to the vocation of training young royalty.

How have you prepared someone else to fill Merlyn’s seat?
