While working for a bank, I was asked to chair a task force on the biggest management trend in business at the time. It soon became obvious that it was all a show to please shareholders.
The CEO had no interest in the results of our work. Senior management undermined the work we did, and created ill will with many staff members.
In Matthew 23:2-3 Jesus told his disciples, "The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat. So you must obey them and do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach."
In business, you need to obey your boss' directives, yet, if you're the leader, you need to practice what you preach, or don't preach it.
