About 7 Lenses
7 Lenses has an important purpose – to provide a clear, actionable road map for leading ethically in a complex world.
With a Foreword by Stephen M. R. Covey, this book takes us beyond the triple bottom line to 7 different perspectives on ethical leadership, and provides 14 Guiding Principles that help us honor them all in daily leadership.
7 Lenses answers these previously unanswered questions:
- Why do even the ethics experts disagree about what ethical leadership means?
- What is the bigger picture that we should use as our leadership road map?
- What are the business benefits of intentionally using high-level ethical leadership?
- What can we do to be prepared for the future of ethical leadership?
Full of examples, graphics, cases and questions, 7 Lenses provides a clear and holistic framework for leading in ways that deeply engage constituents and build trust for the long term.
