Overview

Shocking tales of personal greed, displays of unmasked hubris, and flagrant abuses of power . . . the media is filled with stories about leaders who are undone by their failure of character. These increasingly frequent demonstrations of character failure cut across all sectors of our society—corporations, sports, the entertainment industry, politics, religion, and nonprofit organizations.

Building Character is written for leaders who understand their responsibility to develop authentic leaders within their organizations. Without presenting an overarching moral code or a prescriptive code of behavior, this book offers leaders and managers a practical model complete with the tools, information, and processes to develop character in leaders at all levels. The author explains the role character plays in leadership success and effectiveness and outlines how character can be developed through the Five E's—Example, Education, Experience, Evaluation, and Environment.

Building Character is a dynamic guide that will help any organization develop leaders using a process that is based on good fundamentals, best practices, and common sense.
