Thought for today:
‘The distinguishing mark of the executive responsibility is that it requires not merely conformance to a complex code of morals but also the creation of moral codes for others.’
— Chester Irving Barnard (1938)

Considering when this was written, by a pioneer in management and organisational studies, it strikes me as being just as relevant, if not more.
Firstly, think about the very top management figures you read about – pick one.
Do you think they conform to a complex code of morals?
Do they create moral codes for those around them?
How about our leaders of nations?
I know I will be thinking about this all day long.
