Linda Fisher Thornton’s 7 Lenses and 14 Guiding Principles together give leaders a holistic picture of “good” leadership with the ethical values built in. This is her story…


My Mission is to Unleash the Positive Power of Ethical Leadership.

I found that the current ways of teaching and learning “good leadership” didn’t include the whole picture. 

In our global society what we call “ethical leadership” is actually a continuum of different perspectives, and understanding the continuum helps us see our choices in a broader context. 


After three years of research, I wrote the book 7 Lenses that gives a compelling picture of ethical leadership (in all 7 dimensions of responsibility).
