You have to step back and take away from the lessons you have learnt. I am thrilled The Institute is helping the next generation of leaders learn to do just that.
Decency is the foundation for the kinds of relationships that drive respect, innovation, urgency and enterprise-wide thinking. It’s what supports and inspires people to believe that they can trust you and that you will have your hand on their back and not in their face. This lets them know that they can bring their full hearts and minds to all that they do.
Strong leaders must follow the truth wherever it leads. Nothing is more dangerous than a subordinate who will shade or alter the truth in order to curry favor or impress the boss. Leadership must be built on teamwork, mutual respect, and above all a shared sense of a common objective.
