We believe that genuine leadership requires both a compelling vision for the future and an ability to inspire and motivate across diverse constituencies.

Research on leadership has substantiated that the capacity to positively and strongly influence others is highly related to a leader’s character and personal values. Great leaders who understand and embody their core values are able to transform the aspirations of those around them and align their efforts with a purpose that transcends individual gain.
