I say : Emotion Clouds Reason

Emotion clouds reason . To be an effective decision maker, a person should put truth and betterment of others above himself.

I agree

It is also a premise that the decision maker has already developed himself to be enable him to be objective about the situation.

It depends, does it not ... ?

"Betterment of others"; but what if you are inadvertently making better the lives of those who are surreptitiously doing horrific harm to the weak, (relatively) innoncent, and defenseless? One must be careful; everyone lies.

Emotion Clouds Reason

I agree with both MJDL and MFR that effective leadership requires objectivity and truth, these equal integrity. But I think our colleague The Objective Historian is a bit cynical in stating that "everyone lies". I believe a great leader puts others before himself/herself regardless.
