The Backbone of Leadership. Gus Lee captures a critical component of leadership: not only being honest and fair but acting beyond what may be obviously required, in a way that may be uncomfortable, and often lonely, but is utterly necessary. He helps the reader develop the moral intelligence necessary to root out unethical practices and behaviors.
Scandals in business and politics are the lead stories on the national news. Aside from public outrage, not much has changed. This is because the power to change does not come from information, but from modeling and practicing the learnable behaviors of courage. Many of us tolerate unethical acts, emotional abuse, and routine moral weakness. At work, we look away from character failings, tolerate ethical compromises, avoid conflict, and feel stuck in moral gridlock. Yet studies show that ethical businesses profit more in the long term and that morally courageous leaders inspire their organizations toward sustained success. In other words, integrity and character drive profits.
