ABSTRACT
In this article, the author discusses the lessons that can be learned from the victory of Taylor Hicks on the American Idol and the convictions of former Enron executives Kenneth Lay and Jeffrey Skilling for their illegal activities in 2006. The author advises to stay within yourself to achieve success, the same with what Hicks did during his performance. The convictions of Lay and Skilling left leadership lessons. Even Enron ostensibly had operating principles: integrity, respect, communication and excellence. It is obvious that Lay and Skilling ignored these principles in their business dealings.
