The best-performing companies have leaders who actively apply moral values to achieve enduring personal and organizational success.
Authors Doug Lennick and Fred Kiel identify the moral components at the heart of the recent financial crisis and illuminate the monetary and human costs of failed moral leadership in global finance, business and government.
Lennick and Kiel begin by systematically defining the principles of moral intelligence and the behavioral competencies associated with them.
Next, they demonstrate why sustainable optimal performance—on both an individual and organizational level—requires the development and application of superior moral and emotional competencies.
