Leaving Well

For the public and private sectors, the rules are the same. Leaving well is the greatest gift a leader can give the organization. And when we leave, never do we give advice, or criticism, only appreciation of the organization, if we speak at all.

When we leave, we leave. We close the door. Period.

Given that Cheney was unable during his own tenure to persuade Americans on the question of torture, he can't possibly believe that he can influence them now.

This merely underlines the fact that he is on a PR mission to clear his name and avoid prosecution.
