    Arguing that an individual's character--particularly as constituted by ten particular virtues--is the core factor in determining leadership ability, this book offers a fresh perspective on a subject which has spawned hundreds of books claiming to share the secret ingredients of a leader's success. Here, exemplars as varied as Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill, Steve Jobs, and Oprah Winfrey provide the evidence for ten core leadership virtues that combined to make them figures of inspiration and influence. The authors bring their decades of scholarship in business, ethics, philosophy, and leadership to bear on a topic which could scarcely be more timely and resonant. They show how leadership is a lived process that involves more than facts and theories, and that missing key characteristics lends itself all too easily to the conduct of 'misleadership'. Time, place, issues, and circumstances may shape the outcomes of those aspiring to govern the actions of their fellows, but true leadership flows from an individual's character, ethical principles, and desire to be of service to others.

    It isn't easy to be good, to make the correct ethical decision and stick with it. In 'Why It's Hard to Be Good,' Al Gini explores the philosophical implications of good v. evil and looks at why we have such a difficult time doing the right thing. Gini explains that it is hard to be good until we realize that being good only has meaning in relation to other people. Gini argues that we may worry too much about good versus evil, and should instead think about how being good involves an active relationship toward the people who surround us. This warm and generous book is for anyone who wants to know how to use ethical thinking as a way to live, work, and be with others.
