When character and courage leave the room
In business and in life we often talk about leadership.
Here is the thing, we can talk as long as we want about leadership but there are two things we all admire.
It does not matter whether it’s your neighbors or your co-workers; trust is built on two things – character and courage
Nobody wants to know someone who does not stand by them or talks behind their back or simply stands down when they are being torn apart by someone else.
No one wants neighbors who say they want to be neighborly and then serve you with papers over cocktails.
Leadership character and courage share the same room.
As John Lennon said
Being honest may not get you a lot of friends but it will always get you the right ones.
