Franklin’s New Book Proposes Moral Leadership Model

April 16, 2020

Robert M. FranklinA new book by James T. and Berta R. Laney Professor in Moral Leadership Robert M. Franklin, Jr. has been published by Orbis Books. It is his fifth monograph.

In Moral Leadership: Integrity, Courage, Imagination, Franklin proposes a model for moral leadership—anchored in intellectual and ethical integrity, a vision of and commitment to the public good, and personal investment in transformative community. He then shares ways in which readers in any context can discover and foster those qualities in themselves.

“I define moral leaders to be people who live and lead with integrity, courage, and imagination as they serve the common good while inviting others to join them,” Franklin writes in the book’s introduction. “They are moral agents who respond to the vocation of leadership that increases righteousness, truth, goodness, and beauty.”
