“The challenges we need to overcome in the coming century- from poverty and global warming to terrorism and ethnic strife- are both familiar and daunting. They are not necessarily bigger than those of the last century, but they have a different character. They involve more complex webs of networks and power relationships, they are embedded in systems providing great benefits to some, and they are not likely to yield to traditional solutions or conventional styles of leadership. The 21 st century requires leaders who can navigate the unknown in an ever -changing world and bridge divides between rich and poor, public and private, business and philanthropy, profit and purpose, shareholders and stakeholders.
Moral leadership focuses on moral imagination– the ability to see the world as it is and the audacity to imagine the world as it could be – and the courage required to make this vision real.”
