“Hero” is a perilous word. Do we want heroes? It depends what we mean.
Let’s define the positive and negative patterns of heroism.
What we don’t want is :
– hoarding of knowledge, access, or authority
– valuing incident response over quality
– single points of failure
What we do want is
– exemplars of behaviour
– masters of skill
– servant leaders
That’s my definition of hero.
