People, companies and institutions evolve into business and community leaders only when they define a path guided by a clear vision and adopt an ethical stance providing inspiration and an opportunity for the positive transformation of others. In the words of Theodore Hesburgh "The very essence of leadership is [that] you have a vision. It is got to be a vision you articulate clearly and forcefully on every occasion. You cannot blow an uncertain trumpet." Mahatma Gandhi’s teachings instruct us on leadership – “we must be the change we wish to seek”. The developing country context may sometimes appear as a circular room with closed doors all around us. But Helen Keller reminds us “when one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us." And which few words, as Obama’s “yes we can” has inspired so many to achieve so much positive change? Change is positive when it is ethical. And ethics is profit. Recent research suggests that the world’s most ethical companies are also the world’s most profitable. According to the Journal of Business & Economics Research, there is a positive correlation between an organization’s ethical behaviors and activities and the organization’s bottom line results.
