Leadership and Trust: the Trustworthy Leader

A thought worth sharing with you all: Amy Lyman, author of ‘The Trustworthy Leader writes:
Trustworthy leaders…understand the complexity of bringing together a group of human beings to pursue extraordinary accomplishments. They are masters at guiding, directing, encouraging, and challenging people to contribute their best, in part because they ask the same of themselves. Trustworthy leaders know that their relationships with others throughout the organization are key to their success—however success is measured.
To me, however, a leader by definition must be trustworthy!

Trust and Leadership

I do not agree that trustworthiness is, "by definition", a requirement of leadership. How many crooked politicians and business people have been charged and convicted of fraud, corruption and other crimes that, for their successful commission, rely on the breach of trust between them and their victims? Does that mean they are not leaders?
