What makes a good leader? Ten leaders, ten key virtues

This readable distillation of the core common features of successful leaders shows how an individual's character, and especially their virtue, is the defining factor. Without these ten vital virtues, leadership becomes "misleadership." The authors, both renowned business ethicists, combine theory with fascinating biographical detail on exemplary leaders such as Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill, and Oprah Winfrey. The result is an accessible text on the ethics of leadership which, unlike many publications that claim to reveal the secrets of success as a leader, is informed by a wealth of exceptional academic experience.

From the Back Cover:

Arguing that an individual’s character—particularlyas constituted by ten particular virtues—is the core factorin determining leadership ability, this book offers a freshperspective on a subject which has spawned hundreds of booksclaiming to share the secret ingredients of a leader’ssuccess. Here, exemplars as varied as Abraham Lincoln, WinstonChurchill, Steve Jobs, and Oprah Winfrey provide the evidence forten core leadership virtues that combined to make them figures ofinspiration and influence.

The authors bring their decades of scholarship in business,ethics, philosophy, and leadership to bear on a topic which couldscarcely be more timely and resonant. They show how leadership is alived process that involves more than facts and theories,andthat missing key characteristics lends itself all too easily to theconduct of 'misleadership'. Time, place, issues, and circumstancesmay shape the outcomes of those aspiring to govern the actions oftheir fellows, but true leadership flows from an individual’scharacter, ethical principles, and desire to be of service toothers.
