I‘m often amazed at times by the poor judgement of someone who has attained a leadership position. An Air Force Lt. General was caught in an unprofessional relationship as stated in the post.
In another recent case….a Navy admiral was denied a second star because of discrepancies in travel expenses.
What were they thinking….obviously not using good judgement. It just isn’t in the military that these situations occur. They are prevalent in almost any organization.
Business/organizational leadership requires professional leadership at all levels. If there is any question of what path to follow….using good judgement means saying no!
