Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.
—Robert G. Ingersoll in Abraham Lincoln, a Lecture
Why is it that the more our knowledge about leadership grows, the less we see leaders that we could honestly say, demonstrate the words in the quote above? There is growing discontent and concern among employees all over the world, about the dwindling quality of leadership. The mystery deepens when we see that the very people who express these concerns are often not perceived to be any better as leaders by their own direct reports. Why is it that leadership provides such a colossal opportunity to do so much good, often ends up getting hijacked by narcissism, megalomania, untamed greed, and the temptations to be served instead of serving others?
Why does leadership, more often than we care to admit, bring out the worst, rather than the best in us?
Is there some vital, yet untold secret about our complex relationship with leadership that has slipped through the cracks? Is the lack of awareness of this secret driving a wedge between what is, and what could be? In this engaging and highly interactive session, we will find answers to these questions and discover the road map of the journey that both leaders and followers can undertake to stop the temptations of leadership that undermine a healthy and productive work environment.
