A few decades ago, there were too few sources of information.
Now, there are too many sources of misinformation.
To be an ethical leader today means that you are committed to providing accurate and complete information. You back your statements with primary sources. You refuse to repeat rumors.
Those you lead are anxious amidst all this misinformation. It is detrimental to their health, both physical and mental, and to their performance.
Be a source of certainty that is based on others’ ability to verify what you say.
