In today’s world, leaders have more information available to them than ever before, but this torrent of information isn’t helping them meet the challenges of ethical leadership. Research shows that what leaders need is not more information, but insight.

And although insight may lead to better thinking, it takes more than simply thinking about an idea to transform our organizations into positive, ethical workplaces.
