One thought on this one is honesty.
People want honesty not holiness. Holiness is over rated, not as a spiritual concept but as a leadership characteristic.
There has been a line of thought in the past that a leader can never appear weak or flawed that he has to stand out as an example of holiness.
Now I know we can quote various verses on the subject.
But a brief glimpse at any leadership in the bible reveals flawed weak leaders, in fact I am not sure how many senior leadership teams would have elected David to be on their team, or Moses!
Murderers, cowards, adulterers.
