Business leaders make decisions each day: big and small, positive and negative. All of them affect employees, customers, shareholders, communities, and even society as a whole. To make these decisions in moral and ethical ways, I believe we must adopt the essential qualities of a leader. Successful leaders today and in the decades to come must possess triple-threat leadership capability: IQ+EQ+DQ. In other words, they must possess a combination of two familiar attributes — intellect and emotional intelligence — and one that I believe must be recognized and elevated: decency.
