A New Look at Old Questions, Second Edition
Chapter 9: How can individuals take up the leader role wisely?
This chapter offers three philosophically based approaches for developing the wisdom necessary to lead ethically. The first is Heidegger’s notion of ‘dwelling’ which involves really staying with issues and becoming sensitive to their complexities before rushing to find a solution. The second involves engaging a hermeneutic approach which seeks to understand how smaller aspects of a situation relate to its entirety. The third requires developing an aesthetic sensibility which alerts one to issues of balance and harmony. A case of a UK-based financial services firm is introduced to illustrate how these ideas can inform practical ethical dilemmas.
