The trusted leader

I met a really great leader last week – lets not worry about his name. What made him special for me was not his intellectual horse power (considerable) or his technical expertise (also impressive) but his humility and integrity. Caught in the middle of an organisational mistake not of his making, he did what few leaders seem to do ...he put his hands up and apologised unreservedly. The result .. a difficult situation was diffused and everyone could move on.  How refreshing.
