Leadership requires more than just being a good Person

This video is inspired by George RR Martin and his view on leadership and the price of power. Kouzes and Posner in The Leadership Challenge show that being a good person gets the greatest effort out of the people around you, but just being a nice person can mean you avoid the really tough decisions of Leadership.

What’s the toughest leadership decision of all time?  Answer below the video…

  2. Hi Conor! Spectacular house and views from the drone!
    Relating today’s topic… When you say “Being a good person is not enough for being a good leader” Are you assuming good persons don’t know how to take tough decisions? A good leader must be a good person, and a good person always wants to take the best decision even when there is not a perfect option and all of them could have bad effects. Sometimes it is necessary that someone dies for the benefit of many… does it sound familiar? I believe He had to take the toughest leadership decision ever taken!
