In an increasingly complex and fast changing world, the business world needs a better understanding of what it means to run a responsible business, how to promote an ethical culture, and how business leaders can develop their moral compass. Businesses that train their staff to speak up, to be ethically engaged and to understand codes of ethics tend to financially outperform those that don't by a significant margin.

Andrew Leigh argues ethical culture shows in the actual behavior and attitudes of all staff, rather than in policy documents. An essential read for practicing managers, corporate leaders and HR practitioners, Ethical Leadership is full of practical strategies, case studies and action points to help leaders improve and manage ethical culture and climate in their organizations.

Leigh introduces a working framework for culture change and covers a wide range of related topics, such as leadership and ethics, employee engagement and ethics, communication and ethics, rewards an ethical culture brings to an organization and aligning culture, ethics and strategy.
