As a Leader, It’s Your Duty to Tell the Truth. Always

As a Leader, It’s Your Duty to Tell the Truth. Always

In Canada, the problem of lying and deception by prominent leaders is skewed into the political sphere. The United States, in contrast, is more of an equal opportunity employer, with an abundance of dishonest corporate and political leaders at all...

Should Work-Life Integration Replace Work-Life Balance?

Should Work-Life Integration Replace Work-Life Balance?

People have a love for fads, whether it was the Hula Hoop in the late fifties, the big hair bands of the 80s, or the moon shoes of the nineties. When it comes to workplace issues, we become enthralled with new ideas which often get blindly adopted...

Grace-Civility-Humility are indeed something we all should aspire to.
There was a time in our history when men were gentlemen.
History might reveal that General S. Ulysses Grant & General Robert E. Lee were gentlemen ... not perfect men. None of those exist.

I agree that:
"three character traits that are noticeably absent from the current national dialogue are:
... grace
... civility
... humility

"The ultimate personification of behavior" ... is "FRUIT" (actions NOT words)
"by their fruits you will know them"

An though "elegant" ... the appeal seems like HYPOCRISY
If TRUTH be told ... if HONESTY could be found: were the shoe on the other foot ... the Democrat's would do EXACTLY the same thing.
The only question would be: who was nominated to become a Supreme Court Judge

Personally I find TRUTH & Wisdom to be filled with "eloquence"
Polished platitudes ... however "elegant" are still PLATITUDES
... hollow
... self-serving
... lacking Wisdom
... lacking Truth

The SWAMP is full on both sides with: CONSISTENIES & INCONSISTENCIES
"Misuse of language & Lying LIARS who lie"
