Description

Recent global economic crises have highlighted the devastating impact of business leaders becoming unmoored from an ethical base. Stakeholders now demand that they restore integrity at the heart of the enterprise. Leading with Integrity: A Practical Guide to Business Ethics equips business leaders and managers with the understanding and tools to set the right ‘tone at the top’, embedding a culture of integrity and compliance with ethical and organisational values.

Leading with Integrity: A Practical Guide to Business Ethics:

  • makes the case for an ethical approach to leadership;
  • explores why leaders sometimes lose their way;
  • prescribes the personal characteristics for leading with integrity;
  • outlines a system for cultural and strategic alignment in organisations at home, abroad and in the boardroom; and
  • provides a ‘leading with integrity toolbox’ and a robust framework for ethical decision-making.


A must-read for leaders in any sector and at all levels, non-executive directors as well as governance, risk and compliance professionals, the book concludes with a series of masterclasses in ethical leadership from some of Ireland’s leading business people, including Tony Smurfit (Smurfit Kappa), Siobhán Talbot (Glanbia) and Feargal O’Rourke (PwC).
