leaders losing their way

in an article by bill george (professor of management practice, henry b. arthur fellow of ethics, at harvard business school) he ponders why leaders known for integrity and leadership engage in unethical activities.  a summary of some of his thoughts ....
- when leaders focus on external gratification instead of inner satisfaction, they lose their grounding
- leaders can avoid these pitfalls by reframing their leadership from being heroes to being servants of the people they lead
- they should seek out people who influence them in profound ways and stay connected to them, rather than surrounding themselves with sycophants
