As a leader, our greatest danger is never the blatant crime that we commit, but rather the lie we tell ourselves first. Our greatest weakness is not our surrender to vice, but rather our enormous capability of deceiving our self. Behind most of our worst deeds is an even worse lie. The number one threat to the leader is self-deception.

    Interesting observation here Flint.

    It begs the question then, that if the number one threat is self-deception would the number one strength need to be self-awareness. Being truly able to look inside and see what is going that is prompting these emotional responses.
