We need leaders to reclaim the positive leadership narrative and model responsible behavior. We need leaders in charge who genuinely care about other people and want to make the world a better place.
There are few things more unappealing then someone trying to be something they are not. If your actions aren’t genuine, people pick up on it right away. This doesn’t mean that you have license to behave any way you choose, but every individual should do their best to tap into the better parts of their nature. It’s not always easy, but if you want to lead others, it is a professional imperative.
