As a financial services leader, I often find myself reflecting on the question of ethics in business and my organization’s social mission. In a fast-moving and constantly changing business environment, there is an increasing need to do more with less and, of course, to be more profitable. But what really drives profitability these days? Investing for the future requires us to look beyond the P&L, and to hone in on an element just as important….the value we bring to society at large.

We all strive to be great leaders. Whether in the office, on the field, or in the classroom, even the most experienced leaders should always be looking for ways to enhance and develop their leadership skills.
It takes a unique set of qualities to stand out as a leader. Being a good manager is not the same as being a good leader. The one clear characteristic that makes the difference between good leaders and great leaders is their ability to motivate and inspire their teams to consistently strive for better results.
