  • Act authentically and adapt to every situation by a full implication while keeping emotional distance.
  • Know when to prove leadership and when to step back.
  • Find the good ratio between ethics and pragmatism which is essential to every decision.
  • Show courage in adversity, know when to persevere and when to renounce while keeping the North Star at sight.
  • Act to create value both for the shareholders and for society.


This book gives a practical frame, personnal assessing tools and exercises so that every leader can develop these new capacities .
