Dear Members and Friends

Everyone knows leadership matters. The truly appalling scenes at the U.S. Capitol Building last week provide all of us with a case study of cause and effect and of selfish and debased leadership.

The cause of the riot was President Trump. He incited his followers to march on The Capitol where Congress was meeting in a joint session to formally adopt the Electoral College’s votes and to confirm Mr. Biden as President-Elect.

Mr. Trump does not accept the result of the Presidential Election held last November and has spent the weeks since falsely claiming the election has been stolen. He is the ultimate sore loser. While that is regrettable, the effect of his actions, his delusion, his narcissism and, above all, his selfishness was deadly consequences. Five people died as a result of the riot and yet another blow was dealt to U.S. democracy and to the reputation of the United States by its head of state. We might expect that from a banana republic but not from the United States.

Selfless leaders in business and in government consistently enable, convene, unite and act in the best, long term interests of their teams, their businesses and their countries. They do not act to extend their own selfish agendas or stroke their vanity. Selfless leaders uphold ethics, good governance and the law. Selfless leaders inspire others to do likewise. These are the lessons for all leaders everywhere.

Have a good week ahead.

Yours faithfully
Victor Mills
