The Leadersmith

POWER CORRUPTS AND ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS ABSOLUTELY. WHO SAID IT AND WHY DOES IT MATTER? [EPISODE 48]

July 15, 2020

In this episode of the Leadersmith, I talk about Lord Acton’s famous dictum, “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” I will set the quote in the context of the letter that he wrote to Bishop Creighton and unpack the background so you understand what led to that line (and more importantly, what came after it).

If you will ever be in a position where you will hold power over other people some day, please listen to this episode. You need to understand why this phrase has stood the test of time.
