What do these leaders have in common? Each possesses virtues of wisdom, courage, humanity, justice, temperance, and transcendence and their
associated character strengths that form the foundation of their outstanding leadership. Besides generating astonishing results for their organizations,
these leaders reaped numerous physical, mental, social and spiritual benefits from their strong character. Their stories teach readers leadership
principles that they too can apply to achieve sustainable growth and excellence. The author includes dozens of interesting examples, vivid anecdotes,
