Take the higher moral path

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers

Saint Augustine observed that he had met many people who liked to deceive others, but he’d never met anyone who liked to be deceived. Therefore, he concluded that the higher moral path is to learn to love truth only and to spread it all around you.

Building power by deceiving others, even in small ways, is false leadership, which in the end will only bring any leader down.

—Adapted from Confessions, Saint Augustine, Vintage.
