This concluding chapter on the book 10 Virtues of Outstanding Leaders: Leadership and Character talks about leadership by covering every facet of it. Leadership is more than a set of facts or theories; it is a lived process. Time, place, issues, problems, circumstances, and the particular individuals involved shape the outcomes and play a crucial role in achieving success or failure. The central thesis is that true leadership is based on character, ethics, and service to others. Each of the genuine paragons of virtue we have showcased in this book had his/her moral and personal failures, but each learned from these failures and increased his/her adherence to integrity and moral excellence.
