COLE Advisory Board & Leadership Circle Members

Companies today grapple with ethical leadership issues. There exists a need for a forum for identifying what these issues are, engaging the research community to deepen the understanding of these issues, and sharing of best practices among leaders.

The Fuqua/Coach K Center on Leadership and Ethics (COLE) convenes and continues to attract leaders who are not only experts in their respective industries, but leaders:

  • whose insights and strategic input are critical for keeping COLE’s mission relevant and impactful
  • who share a deep concern for problems of global consequences
  • to review trends and share best practices in leadership
  • to help maintain the relevance and sensitivity of our educational initiatives to market realities and the perspectives of recruiters, practitioners, and everyday leaders
  • to support COLE’s efforts to advance the synthesis of rigorous research that advances the practice of ethical leadership and leadership development.
