Whitepaper: Moral leadership – the crucial theme of this time

The exemplary behavior of leaders is crucial to reduce the reputational risk of integrity issues within your organization.

het belang van moreel leiderschap in corporate Nederland

We live in a time where ethical issues and integrity violations continuously receive media attention, and leaders are under scrutiny. This is rightfully so, as CEOs and executives bear significant responsibility, not only for the results they achieve but also for the means by which these results are attained. Recent research indicates that in 2018, for the first time, more CEOs were dismissed due to ethical issues than poor performance. 

This is a distressing outcome that won't improve without action. Meanwhile, leaders wield a tremendous amount of influence. Consider the admiration for icons like Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and Warren Buffet, who have influence not only within their organizations but also beyond. Moral leadership is, therefore, the crucial theme of our time.
