The Hypocrisy Hierarchy

The CEO. The Public Speaker. The Seminar Leader. The Company Owner. The VP of Sales. The Coach. The Guru. The Political Leader.

All people at the top of their game. All highly influential. Role models. Life Changers. Decision Makers. Leaders.

We all know it takes a certain amount of Personal Development to get to the top. It takes courage, charisma, work, consistency, persistence and a willingness to become better this year than you were last year.

Personal Development takes lots of forms from books, podcasts, seminars to transformational and accountability coaches.

Personal Development is the Art and Science of developing ourselves to grow, to become wiser. It's about becoming more empathetic, more mature, more enthusiastic, more optimistic, more courageous, more thoughtful, and more generous.

   

What is the Hypocrisy of the Hierarchy?

 

Have you noticed how often the leaders in the highest position of influence demonstrate that they quit personal development years ago?

What are they reading? What are they listening to?

When is the last time they had a coach? When is the last time they allowed someone else to hold them accountable to do what they said they would do?

Have their inspirational speaking and writing gained power, authenticity and impact?

Or do we witness:

  • Lying
  • Anger
  • Intimidation
  • Blame
  • Fear
  • Political infighting
  • Greed
  • Apathy
  • Infidelity
  • Arrogance
  • The addiction to Being Right
 

When the number one motivational speaker in the world can only have impact with the F bomb.

When our most trusted political leaders habitually lie and willfully break the law.

When the number one authors of personal development are anything BUT in private what they write about in public.

When Billionaires belittle others and bemoan what is asked of them?

When those we have lifted up to royalty on the wings of our hard work and loyalty act like petulant 5 year old’s.

We are on a slippery slope to Stupid.

We [the people] ought to hold our highest models [coaches] to a higher standard. The coach ought to always have a coach….or the coach doesn’t actually believe in coaching. Make sense?

Being on top does not entitle one to entitlement. The fish rots from the head.

What we tolerate teaches our leaders what is acceptable. And culturally we have been tolerating pathetic behavior. Do you “Say Yes” the F Bomb? Do you vote for criminals and liars? Do you bow down to the Belittlers?

We all do to a degree, and to the degree we do, we design our culture. We design our future. We design our children’s futures.

RIP General Colin Powell. RB

YES! Well stated! If only ‘they’ would be able to look in the mirror, accept it and take action against these toxic behaviors! I truly appreciate your candor Richard.

True. So what about the communities, that often gain the trickle down effect which causes great pain to many generations. As a young lad I’ve seen many cultures become blissful and ignorant due to to these beliefs. I pray we all can stand individually. To be accountable for all we do and can do to make things better step by step.

So true and so sad. I have had many coaches over the years. Horsemanship, Corporate career, Network Marketing, Life and wellness. The ones that teach me the most and earn my respect do what they preach, are on the same path of never ending self improvement, kick my butt with respect and my best interest at heart. I do same for the people who look to me for coaching. I have seen people I had respected not doing what they ask others to do when not in public…sometimes it’s because they are human and mess up, sometimes that is who they really are….do not get me going on politics LOL. Thank you as always for sharing your wisdom . I am not always easy to coach LOL.

Your rant is pretty accurate. Unfortunately many of the people involved develop the same attitude as their leaders because those striving for advancement won’t advance if they do not conform. Any ideas to combat the situation that appears to be a global epidemic?
