Twenty-one members of the Lead Change Group set out to define a concept they have been writing about on their blogs and discussing in conference calls since 2009.  They define character-based leadership as “leading from who you are, not your position or power.”

Each character-based leader is unique, bringing their best “self” to make a positive difference.  This unique work aligns 21 different author’s perspectives on aspects of character-based leadership in a manner designed to inspire you to be the leader you can be.
