Who should judge a leader

Evidently some leaders feel that only other leaders can judge them, but in reality becoming a leader means opening yourself up for judgement at all times. By subordinates, customers, stakeholders, shareholders and customers.

One of the key skills that people aspiring for a leadership role is to cultivate openness for feedback. And also understand that more negative will come their way and any good job done will be assumed as 'it was expected'.

On some other aspects, some people feel that there should be less transparency about leader, er, CEO compensation.
