The Good, Bad, and Ugly of Leadership

Social Organization and Change Leadership Beware of false prophets. Lead by example. As a leader, are you passionate and focus on a few key principles which you will not sacrifice under any circumstances?  How strong is your willpower?  Does your willpower have staying power?  Can you weather a long storm? in general: heros: Tank Man | grooming global leaders: Salzburg Global Seminar | accountability: The buck stops here.

Like it or not, successful leaders can come in all stripes: good, bad, and ugly.

Some teachers are cruel to their students, while some teachers change students’ lives.

Some coaches are jerks, while some coaches inspire greatness in their athletes.

Some CEOs are flat out assholes, while some CEOs are fair, honest, and visionary.

Some presidents are philandering, big mouth blowhard’s, while some presidents are soft-spoken, strong, inspirational leaders of a nation.

This is the way of the world. It is frustrating to the average civil person who plays by the rules, when a CEO or a politician or any person in a position of leadership and power can be as successful as they are mean, conniving, and dysfunctional.

As to our newly elected President Donald Trump, we must give him the benefit of the doubt because that is what we do as Americans. As to his character and performance going forward, time will tell, the ball is in his court.
