“Authentic Leadership” by Bill George
In the wake of continuing corporate scandals there have been few, if any, CEOs that have stepped forward as models of “doing things right”—except the former chairman and CEO of Medtronic, Bill George. George has become the unofficial spokesperson for responsible leadership—in business, the media, and academia.

He persuasively demonstrates that authentic leaders of mission-driven companies will create far greater shareholder value than financially oriented companies.
