• Observer, very good. I agree.

    Tophat, I agree with you and wrote the post in more general terms. People can change, and there are many examples, but in general people have what is called Petrine conversions if I use a slang theology to describe it. What I mean is most are formed by the day-to-day grind cementing their moral choices as each one is made.

  • I tend to agree with your thoughts, however many great leaders came from undesirable family situations.
    Personally I do not think a consultant is the first choice of "correction". Support and guidance from "higher-ups", counterparts, and people under the guidance of leader is most effective.
    In order for this to be effective, the leader has to learn how to listen, accept criticism (not always constructive), and develop the skills to invoke self-discipline.
    Consultant focused on self-betterment skills might be useful. No leader is perfect, always have need for improvement.
