What We′ve Learned from Fortune′s Top Companies for Leaders

Every two years, the RBL Group co-sponsors (with Hewitt) the Top Companies for Leaders study that is published in Fortune magazine. The results are tabulated for global and regional companies. What’s different about the companies that are recognized for building the best leaders in the world?

Ensuring Ethics

Many of the most significant management and social problems derive less from a crisis of talent than from a crisis of ethics. The ethics of leadership is the critical factor that inspires trust and loyalty in employees and customers. We must develop the ability to recognize the unanticipated ethical implications of all management decisions and actions.

How Leaders Build Value

Market value is comprised of two parts--earnings and intangibles. Intangible value is the confidence that investors have in your business compared to other businesses in the same industry. Learn the four steps that guide wealth-creating leaders as they increase stakeholder confidence in the future.

Increasing Personal Proficiency

Ultimately, your ability to lead others begins with yourself. What does it mean to be prepared to lead? Leaders who are grounded in their values and beliefs, emotionally mature in their knowledge of themselves and their response to changing circumstances, curious and eager to learn and improve, and able to nurture themselves while maintaining a passion for what they do are able to inspire others to greater effectiveness. Building individual resources for personal proficiency is critical for overall leadership effectiveness.
