On Ethics and Integrity

As a leader you have power, and with power comes responsibility.

Immanuel Kant once said: "So act that your principle of action might safely be made a law for the whole world!" 

Nothing less can be expected from a leader. Today more than ever, and in the time to come we need true leadership ... leadership based on the highest values such as integrity, honesty, trustworthiness. This is true for society at large, not only for organizations. 
With the ever advancing technology, as seen in virtual social networks, people have now more than ever the ability to hold leaders publicly accountable. However, there is an important point people must observe: The very same integrity, honesty, and trustworthiness we expect from out leaders, applies to us as well.
