The current ways of teaching and learning “good leadership” didn’t include the whole picture… 

With a background in learning and human development, Linda Fisher Thornton realized that 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, she wrote the book 7 Lenses for learning ethical leadership (in all 7 dimensions of responsibility).
