Not everyone aspires to be an ethical leader.
Some simply want to do what is right, quietly, on their own. They are not looking to inspire others to do the same (although they might do that occasionally without intending to).
Others simply want to follow the rules. They believe that playing by the rules is playing fair. Whether the rules themselves are fair to all players is for someone else to decide.
A few believe that all is fair in love and war. They love their family and business is war. They have one life to live and they want what is best for their loved ones. If being loyal means that they need to break a few rules here and there, then so be it.
And perhaps all of us fall on different points of this spectrum at different times. Especially if we don’t give much thought to how good we want to be.
How about today? How good do you want to be?
