Honesty and Integrity in leadership

I only need 250-300 words combined (not per question):

1. How can leaders/managers demonstrate honesty and truth in their work environment? How do you think workers might respond to this question?

2. Read the quote from Secretary of State Colin Powell that is below. Do you agree with Powell that good leaders should “share the credit” but “take the blame”? Why or why not?

“Finally, most successful leaders have a strong sense of accountability for the results of not only their own efforts but also those of their followers. In this sense, they are happy to share credit when things go well, but also to accept blame when things don’t. When asked about how to reconcile successes and failures as a leader, former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell once said “Share the credit, take the blame, and quietly find out and fix things that went wrong. Whenever you place the cause of one of your actions outside yourself, it’s an excuse and not a reason.” (Executive Leadership, 2013).”
