While there is a high demand for knowledge on responsible leadership, there has been, till now, no source able to meet that demand. Enron, Worldcom and other high-profile cases of management and leadership misconduct have highlighted the need for such a book to provide the reader with crucial insights on such issues as responsible leadership, which leadership competencies are needed, and how to develop responsible leaders. Experts in the field of business and leadership ethics have now been brought together to write this much-needed text. It answers the challenge of defining responsible leadership in an era of globalization, and as such is highly topical and relevant to all those on the path to becoming responsible leaders.
