Lead from the heart
Principled, compassionate leadership starts with you
What does it mean to lead from the heart? At Stanford GSB, it means two things: leading authentically and leading ethically. Leading authentically comes from playing to your strengths, knowing yourself, and finding your natural leadership style. Our program encourages you to ask yourself the hard questions, building the self-awareness needed to become a great leader.
Leading ethically is rooted in your convictions. It’s acting with integrity without hesitation. We call it principled leadership — having a sense of responsibility not just to your organization, but to society at large and the world. We'll help you hone your instincts as a principled leader through self-reflection, study, and practice.
