In organisational life, everything is political. We will never be able to create a working culture which removes the politics of organisational life, so politics will always be with us. The question becomes not "Should I play?" but "How should I play?". This article examines ways to play which are ethical and appropriate, and notes some behaviours to watch out for from those less ethical than you.

In this article Roger suggests that current financial and economic crises have resulted from rewarding people who deliver profit for organisations more highly than those who deliver profits and values. What does this mean for people faced with the challenge of leading organisations into a new era?

Management development practice does not encourage leaders to examine their values, yet followers require values-based predictability from leaders. Authentic leadership is leadership where a course of action is decided not by situational imperatives but by reference to an examined, broadly unchanging template of core values. Well-facilitated workshops will help leaders both to appreciate the importance to authentic leadership of core values and to understand how they as individuals can identify those values which are core to them.
