A lot of people are sort of living a lie, they’re doing things they don’t really believe in because they feel they have to, and that’s very uncomfortable actually […] you sort of hate yourself for doing it […] and it’s very bad for morale, very bad for productivity. I think that one of the talents of leadership is to make that happen as little as possible.
Here we are, we’re supposed to be great, prosperous and successful countries and people are unhappy, not because they’re badly treated, not because they’re badly managed, but because they’re actually not using their lives in the way that I think is fully productive. And I call this a sort of “corporate sin.”
