“What is the link between leadership character, organisational culture, and long-term success?

Glenn Williams

Abstract

In the light of high-profile collapses and public leadership failures around the world, there is no better time than now to challenge the traditional discourse on leadership — and in particular, a leader’s values and ethics in relation to personal and organisational performance. In 2011, Dr. Glenn Williams set out to explore the link between leadership character and performance. What defines it? Can it be measured? Is it more likely that businesses will thrive if their leaders and workplace culture have a set of values that consistently drives not only their performance, but become foundational to their business practices, brand, and results? How do organisations maintain a strong commitment to ethical leadership when they are under pressure to deliver great results? Dr. Williams will share from his research and give practical insights from his direct work with CEOs, Board Chairs and executives, having worked with leaders in 40 countries.
