Theo Epstein on leadership

You may have missed it, but the Chicago Cubs won the World Series this year. Here's what their president, Theo Epstein, says about leadership. From The Daily Beast.

How It Felt to Be in the Dugout With the Chicago Cubs After They Won the World Series
“It’s not about me,” he says vehemently, and he means it. “A great organization is a thousand little sacrifices when no one’s looking—a scout traveling 100 miles out of his way to see a prospect, the stat people up all night—it takes everyone.” I say that the world will now want his lessons on leadership. “All that business school leadership stuff is bullshit,” he tells me.

However, this ignores the pool of applicants. If only 10% of applicants were females, then a higher percentage of women who applied were selected versus the percentage of men who applied.  Another common example involves the mythical terrorist-spotting device. Imagine a box that has a 99% success rate at positively identifying a terrorist and a 99% chance at properly identifying a non-terrorist correctly.
