There are many varying aspects of desired leadership in business and in government: managerial competencies, policy-making aligned with the needs of all affected stakeholders, effective communication skills, and the infusion of ethics in all forms of decision-making. However, none command attention more than the ability to lead in a world where every eco-system is in decline and the health of the planet is dangerously threatened. It will be those leaders who understand the magnitude, science, and extreme importance of this issue who are in the highest demand and to whom we look to protect the progress made in human rights worldwide, to promote governance without oppression, and to advance prosperity in an equitable and sustainable manner.
