Great leaders must build on a firm foundation of self-awareness.

Natalie Savage's curator insight, May 6, 2013 10:05 AM

Sometimes we face the challenge of helping others who are struggling through difficult leadership journeys. The following paragraph struck me as I read this article this morning. We must be brave and strive to do "the right thing"-- even when it proves uncomfortable or difficult.

 

We lead by virtue of who we are every time we refuse to play safe. We do it every time we speak up about what’s important to us. We do it every time we hold someone accountable. We do it every time we think outside the box, or turf the box out altogether.  And we do it every time we refuse to let our failures define us, and we challenge what has always been in exchange for what could be.

John Michel's curator insight, March 30, 2013 7:36 AM
To some, the idea of a hero is passé.  A cynical workforce has seen their benefits cut, jobs outsourced, and firms and factories closed whilst those most culpable for these failures have been rewarded.  For many, integrity is relative.  One company I worked with believed “excessive honesty” was a detriment that limited an employee’s upward potential.  One performance review derided an employee for “Complicating business decisions with excessive ethics.”  Are the days of “Voluntary Virtue” gone?  Don’t people do the right thing just because it’s the right thing to do?  In Machiavellian terms, do the ends justify the means?
