At what level of bosses can you teach people. If a supervisor in a
company becomes effective, and the rest of the company is still
negative, poorly motivated....how effective can that supervisor be?
How long will it take before that supervisor
a) leaves for a more productive work environment
or b) starts modelling the management behaviours

I'm not skeptical about the ability to teach people to lead, what I am
skeptical is how effective teaching one person in a company will be.
If the person is senior enough, he may be able to influence a lot.
