Benefits of the 7 Lenses Model

Many leadership books provide information, but 7 Lenses is different – it provides deep insights that change the way you see the world and your role in it. Readers report that they can make sense out of complex ethical situations in the news and have a compelling way to “see” ethical leadership that has powerful positive effects on their leadership and their lives.
