A scapegoat is a person or animal which takes on the sins of others or is unfairly blamed for problems or failures of others. The concept originally comes from Leviticus (the third book of the Jewish Bible and of the Old Testament) in which a goat is designated to be cast into the desert with the sins of the community. Other ancient societies had similar practices.
After all these years and as far back as history could be told, isn’t it sad that scapegoating still exists today in politics and in management !!
Due admiration goes to LEADERS who take equal blame with his team versus those who finger point failures to others.
