Moral Leadership

I am tremendously fascinated by how decisions are made, and how they impact the decision maker themselves, other people, and organisations.

I believe that it is possible to act morally and achieve excellent outcomes for a business/organisation,  that moral leadership is habitual and thus can be trained and nurtured, and that the…

#Cyberpeacefare #Dwight Eisenhower Quote

"The peace we seek is nothing less than the fulfillment of our whole faith among ourselves and in our dealings with others.  This signifies more than the stilling of guns, easing the sorrow of war. More than an escape from death, it is a way of life.  More than a haven for the weary,it is the hope for the brave." 

(Need faith in what unites us all: love and respect - common aspirations - pursuit of happiness - common good…

Facing a Pandemic in the Dark

Over 1 million Rohingya refugees living in crowded, unsanitary conditions in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh could soon be facing their own COVID-19 outbreak. Making their situation even more desperate is an Internet blockade, meaning they don't have access to life-saving information, writes Rohingya activist and educator Razia Sultana. How can international organizations help?

Hungary and the Values Test

In the wake of the Hungarian parliament's vote to allow the executive to rule by decree, Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev reflects on the call by some to expel Hungary from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization--on the grounds that the country no longer upholds the liberal-democratic values that should form the basis of the security association.
