Great companies have leaders who actively apply moral values to achieve enduring success. Conversely, companies with amoral or dishonorable leaders fail–and, in the recent financial crisis, they nearly took down the world economy with them. Moral Intelligence 2.0 identifies the values that matter most, demonstrates their links to success, shows how to apply them as leaders, and helps you build companies that embody them.

Using new examples, case studies, and interviews with key business leaders, the authors show how greater moral intelligence can drive higher levels of trust, engagement, retention, and innovation. Readers will find specific, expert guidance on moral leadership in both large organizations and entrepreneurial ventures. This edition also introduces a practical, step-by-step plan for strengthening all four core elements of moral intelligence: integrity, responsibility, compassion, and forgiveness.

  • Quantifying the business value of high moral intelligence
    …and the multiple costs of moral failure
  • Applying moral values when it’s toughest–and matters most
    Four steps toward the right decision: recognize, reflect, reframe, and respond
  • Becoming a more effective moral leader
