Summary
"In Authentic Leadership Bill George makes the case that we need new leaders, not just new laws, to bring us out of the current corporate crisis. He persuasively demonstrates that authentic leaders of mission-driven companies will create far greater shareholder value than financially oriented companies." "George candidly recounts many of the toughest challenges he encountered - from ethical dilemmas and battles with the FDA to his own development as a leader. He shows how to develop the five essential dimensions of authentic leaders - purpose, values, heart, relationships, and self-discipline." --Book Jacket
