Darth Vader and the Death Eaters

Daily Draw: Tarot of the Hidden Realm, Shadowdance

This (impossibly handsome) chap looks not so much wicked as knowing. Knowing what is is instead of knowing what ought. and all the pragmatism that follows from that.

I've been dancing in the shadows today (with the best of intentions). Not somewhere I normally go. I prefer up front and honest but I'm learning that tricksy team dynamics and office politics means that is not always possible. I should know this already being a management and leadership researcher...

New article in mind. The shadow side of leadership from Darth Vader to the Death Eaters. Catchy no? 


  1. My daughter has her first real job, and it was such a blow to realize the lack sincerity in her coworkers. She just assumed people would say what they mean and mean what they say.

    1. It's such a hard lesson to learn. I'm twenty years plus into my career and still learning it.

  2. I have a horrible time typing on my eyepad, that's why I pack my computer along on vacation. :) Shadow boxing. Good practice for out front boxing.

  3. Mine was a WHY?pad last night. Hidden feature of translating sense to nonsense kicked in.

  4. By far one of my favorite Devil cards!!! yummy
