Leadership consultants John Knights, Danielle Grant and Greg Young assert that CEOs need a robust moral code to avoid degenerating into ruthlessness, aggression and exploitation. They say firms need chiefs who also are self-confident, assertive and charismatic. This serious overview tells executives how to become “transpersonal leaders” and explain why they must turn to values, ethics and empathy for guidance. The authors detail the kinds of intelligence leaders need, explain how even insensitive bosses can become transpersonal, and make it clear that a good leader must be a “good person.”
