I’m currently reading Dan Brown’s novel Deception Point (not his best, but not a bad weekend read). I was struck by the motto of one of the characters – ‘Find the truth. Act on it’. My first thought was that this is such a simple statement, but with a lot of punch. If more leaders would adopt this as their personal ‘mission statement’ it would certainly have a great impact on the companies, countries, etc, that they’re supposed to be leading. Often, even if they know the truth, leaders refuse to act on it. Other times, they just refuse to acknowledge, or even find, the truth, nevermind acting on it. As I said, very simple statement, but definitely one worth pondering.­
