Al Gini: "10 Virtues of Outstanding Leaders

Thursday, October 24, 2013 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Meet River Forest author and long-time Loyola University Professor, Al Gini, when he shares stories from his new book, "10 Virtues of Outstanding Leaders." Co-authored with Ronald Green, this book
shows how an individual's character, and especially their virtue, is the defining factor. Without these 10 vital virtues, leadership becomes "misleadership." The authors, both renowned business ethicists, combine theory with fascinating biographical detail on exemplary leaders such as Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill, and Oprah Winfrey.
