« What Bad Bosses Can Learn From "The Jerk" | Main | Ridiculous Business Solution - From Amish Leaders to the Rest of Us »

Oct 5
Are We Missing Mark Foley's Real Leadership Story?

We know … or are quite certain that … Congressman  Mark Foley …

1. was raped by a man who said he represented the gospel – and then sexually abused others …
2. claimed to represent American voters - and then sexually abused young men…

Why are we stopping there … though … when this story is packed with wisdom opportunities for leaders everywhere and for humanity today…?

Foley’s story is one that should inspire leaders and the rest of us to consider opposite viewpoints in questions about leadership… and the human brain….

Leaders … rather than focus on constant coverage of Foley’s choices … might ask  

1. What do we believe ... and how do others see us living those stated beliefs…?
2. Who do we represent when we make choices about how to treat humanity…?

Focus too much on Mark Foley’s erroneous choices and the human brain blocks out inspired lessons from it.
Focus instead on how the human brain helps leaders to restore community… let’s look past Foley … keep his mistakes in mind and imagine a new design for living…. To do so we ask…

1. How can we rewire a brain from focusing on Foley’s flaws to avoiding these mistakes  in our own choices…?
2. What would it take for new neuron pathways that prosper people around us … rather than abuse other humans…?

The media gives us the stories … and that’s their job. Ours is to ask the questions that reflect for personal and leadership growth. Let’s not stop with Foley’s constantly repeated story and miss its less obvious gateways to inspire our minds and lives. What do you think?
