Picard as Captain.
Leadership styles come in many different forms and types and each captain adds their own flare to this job. So, how does Captain Picard rate? He tends to be more distant and professional until the very last episode when he joins the crew for a game of poker. However, we learn more about Picard's hobbies, talents and interests than we do the other captains. But, does this make him more personable or relatable? Picard pushes his crew to be their best, yet is this his only responsibility as captain?
In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Richard Marquez and Amy Nelson are joined with Patrick Devlin to discuss Jean Luc Picard as a captain. We look at the other captains within the franchise and discuss their leadership styles. When following a commanding officer, boss or principal, which is type of leadership is preferred? One who is task-oriented or one who is more social?
