Monitoring Hypocrisy

Here is a surprising point:  recognizing our hypocrisy is a source of power.  When we become willing to monitor our hypocrisy, we discover that intense personal shame drives us to close our integrity gaps.  Accepting the truth about our hypocrisy helps us to transform ourselves and others.

Others are transformed because our courage and integrity replace our cowardice and hypocrisy.  Our new self becomes a catalyst of collective change.  This is the legacy of people who operate in the fundamental state of leadership.
