With more than one million data points, KRW’s seven-year study of 84 CEOs, 8000+ employees across 100+ organizations found that leadership Character is a significant predictor of an organization’s success.
Leaders of strong Character create more value for their organization than do their Low Character counterparts.
Organizations led by High Character senior teams average an astonishing ~5x greater return on assets (ROA) and 26% higher workforce engagement. They also show lower levels of corporate risk, as measured by audit fees and legal events. The business results achieved through this combination represent the organization’s Return on Character® (ROC).
