Center for Responsible Leadership –

Unlocking the potential of good leadership.

About us

Combining the theory and practice of responsible leadership.

The center aims at the integration of three components:

  • The will to lead
  • The skill to lead 
  • The integrity to lead

Leaders must understand their own values (what’s important to them) and their role in other people’s lives (what’s important to others), in order to lead with integrity. Such an understanding of the meaning and the objectives of leadership is the basis for an individual to lead others, for successful application of management skills and an active acquisition of social responsibility, both within and outside the company. For this reason, the Center for Responsible Leadership combines topics of leadership, business ethics, and social responsibility.
