What Happens When Leadership Fails…Part 1

As mentioned in the past, we are not here to speak for or against persons within political positions of government.

Regardless of where someone positions themselves politically, developments within the legislative and administrative systems of our country have raised several questions about leadership.

The number of quotes and principles stated regarding leadership and what happens when leaders fail to be trustworthy is fascinating.

One primary thought that has been expressed for several years, indicative of recent months, is, “Everything rises and falls on leadership.”

On more than one occasion, various news reporters have expressed the idea of accountability. Specifically, one analyst expressed that what leaders must do when mistakes are made is to confess the mistake, take responsibility, and let the chips fall where they may.

A number of ideas could be considered and over the next few weeks we will examine several areas describing what happens when leadership fails.

Leaders will make mistakes and experience failure. How leaders strategically maneuver during these times determines the level of trust to be gained or lost by those who follow.

More next week…
