Here is another endorsement of the importance that ethical conduct plays in leadership. Steve Farber, the adovocate of "Extreme Leadership," writes that The Extreme Leader's Mantra is, "Do what you love in the service of people who love what you do."
The second part of the mantra stresses ethical conduct. Says Farber: "In the service of people: This is what keeps you true, honest, and ethical at the very least. If you’re doing what you love, you’ll make yourself happy, but if that’s all you’re doing, you’re a narcissist, not a leader. Leadership is not only about you; it’s about your impact on others and your ability to help transform things for the better. Ideally, for all of us."
