David Hain's curator insight, October 31, 2013 1:58 PM

In today’s connected, complex world, where the ability to cultivate and sustain trusting relationships with myriad stakeholders is vital to personal and organisational credibility, ethical leadership has never been more needed.  Countless recent scandals are testament to the sad fact that the demand for such leadership has frequently been let down by its supply.  From the exploitation of garment workers in Bangladesh to the underwhelming figures on employee engagement in most countries, there is a sense that we are frequently let down by those who lead us.  And yet there are multitudes who want to collaborate well across increasingly global boundaries to address the numerous universal issues that threaten the stability and sustainability of our world.
