Leading with a Moral Compass

There are any number of pressures on corporate leaders to take the fast lane to profitability, starting with shareholder demands. Increasingly, however, CEOs are taking a longer view of management and its broader stakeholder responsibility, and making calls that might risk profit in favor of doing the “right thing” for society by virtue of the value systems their firms and institutions represent. How do leaders give voice to broader values today? How do they build values into their organization’s culture? How do investors make smart choices for the greater good of society? And why do they do it? A seasoned panel of top executives delves into the culture of corporate responsibility.
