Regarding Keith's statement . .

Here's a possible correlation. Using neuro-logistic programing (NLP)
terminology, "auditory" people make good fire-fighters (as in "present
tense"). Some executives (many, most ?) are where they are at today
because of their fire-fighting skills. Since some people (many, most ?)
have a preferred modality, some "auditory" executives (many, most ?)
have limited capacity to move an organization forward beyond the
present mode of operation.

What do you mean by "linear" ?
