Guess what? Character-driven leaders deliver five times greater financial returns for their organizations.
Does the character of our leaders matter? According to research done by KRW International it really, really, does!
Welcome to a Leadership Channel Podcast on TotalPicture. Joining Peter Clayton today is Fred Kiel, PhD, co-founder of KRW International, the author of Return On Character. For more than thirty years, he has helped Fortune 500 CEOs and senior executives build organizational effectiveness through leadership excellence and mission alignment. Strategy+Business considers Return on Character one of the best business books of 2015.

For the first time we now have data to measure the correlation. In Return On Character (Harvard Business Review Press,), the findings are revealed from KRW International's seven-year study on the financial impact of character.
