About This Blog and an Opportunity to Help Shape it
November 19, 2009 Leave a comment
This blog was started in order to help leaders find cutting edge, research-based, practical tools for improving leadership and leadership development in today’s business world. The focus is on ethical, results-based leadership.
“There are a variety of reasons why CLOs are finding that the leadership ethics problem is not easily solved: The definition of leadership ethics is still unclear; its scope is broadening, making it a moving target; ethics is hard to talk about; and the most useful leadership ethics programs are company-specific. So, we have an unclear topic that is in flux, on a subject that is itself a gray area. We have a general discomfort talking about the subject, and an off-the-shelf training program isn’t going to fix the problem.”

Take a moment to make this blog work for you! Please post a comment letting me know what kinds of practical leadership information you are having trouble finding. I will build some of my future posts around reader questions and comments.
