"This book examines the common character strengths and weaknesses of leaders that directly impact the ethical nature of their decisions and behavior." (Daniel Roysden, Ph.D.)
"This book is well organized and explores many unique and thought provoking aspects of ethical leadership. The notion of leader shadows and topics such as forgiveness make this text an essential tool for sparking lively debate from students on the issues of leadership ethics." (Stephen J. Linenberger)
