Moral Audits are focused exclusively on assessing the values, character of the executives and of their leadership skills. We strongly believe that despite high potential, competences and skills of a certain person, who are no doubt very important, long term success/positive impact is only achieved with a values based leadership.

During the last 14 years we have done a thorough research to understand the main roots for success and failure in business, the main causes of value creation and value destruction.

In most (if not all) cases of failure, the causes were related to the lack of values of some leadership team members (greed, lack of caring, lack of trust, lack of ethics, etc).

In several companies that communicate to have strong values (i.e. Enron), such people are hired and even more, promoted because interviewers miss key clues and are usually blinded by credentials or, under short term results pressure, many executives compromise. The former Dean of a top 10 global business school once said that “Our society has put performance against purpose”.

In line with our vision, we have developed during the years a successful proprietary methodology in assessing the values that we use both in our assessment processes and executive search process interviews.
