On Moral Intelligence and leadership

Fred's a guy thats been around the corporate halls and boardrooms. One might think that after 40 odd years of coaching CEOs and top leaders at Fortune 500 corporations he might be a tad cynical or at least hardened in the heart...not so! During our VisionHolder Interview last night, Fred came on as an unabashed optimist, not exactly Pollyanna, however filled with a hope and promise that those at the top really "get it" and that they understand that people centric cultures are GOOD, if not the imperative ingredient for enhancing business performance.

He talked at length about how leaders are developing their moral skills and muscles around the universal priciples of Integrity, Responsbility, Compassion and Forgiveness.. sound appealing? visonary? possible? Well, the folks at Costco and a bunch of the other leaders Fred and his co-author Doug Lennick have been coaching over the years seem to think so.
