Integrity and Leadership
An oxymoron? CEOs and political leaders are falling from their pinnacles—but only when they get caught. What were they doing wrong and how were they able to lead others at all? With over four decades experience in government and the private sector, Ambassador Bremer is in a unique position to discuss the principles of effective leadership. He puts “integrity” at the top of his list of essential leadership qualities. He believes these can be learned by example and by an emphasis on basic values.
