Hi Bob,

Really enjoyed reading this post. With social media and the 24/7 news cycle, transparency is key to remain trustworthy.

I think it was interesting to observe how Tiger Woods and Letterman handled their affairs around the same time but in such different ways.


Bob ... thanks for the post. It is always good to find examples of leaders taking responsibility. Although it is the mantra of great organization, so few people follow it that when people do take responsibility, it deserves special comment. That seems backwards.

I always liked the example of Scott Waddell who took responsibility when his submarine surfaced under a Japanese vessel. Contrast that to many of the business leaders who spoke to us in graduate school and then took no responsibility for their actions.


Methinks you mean 'patience' in "the shareholders are losing patients". Unless only doctors can be shareholders... :->
