About this item
Worldwide examples of unethical conduct in both private businesses and government institutions seem to continue without end. Why havent we made any significant impact on the amount of fraud and corruption?
In an effort to improve integrity and ethical conduct in the workplace, many organizations have increased their efforts to educate their employees on the regulations that govern their organizations, their industries, and the countries they do business in. This is, however, only part of the equation, and we have neglected the more important part: the development of individuals characters.
Just as firefly populations are dwindling worldwide, so are populations of business and government leaders who radiate the light of well-developed, virtuous characters. Simply put, we need more fireflies in the workforcefireflies are leaders who understand the importance of character development as the foundation for successful leadership.
In Fireflies: Leading with Excellence and Integrity, Melt van der Spuy explains how good character, like fireflies light, requires purpose, effort, strength, and efficiency. He focuses on seven key virtues, drawn from classical and Christian thought, that are foundational to building good character.
Fireflies will awaken your thinking about what it really takes to fraud proof your business and deliver excellence with integrity. Dare to be a firefly.
