Is it better to have a leader who "gets the job done" - regardless of how it gets done - OR - is it better to have a leader with integrity and character, but is less effective?

Who would you rather be as a leader?
Who would you rather have lead you?

Integrity/character is what will gain the most trust with your team and in the end make your team stronger. Doing whatever it takes to get the job done can lead you down the road of cutting regulation corners and get you in real trouble.

Integrity and character over pragmatism. Pragmatists are often assholes.

And why can't you be both? Are you saying that they are mutually supporting? Gee- I found them to be so.

Sure, they COULD be both. But they often are not. Given the choice, which would you rather be? Or follow?
