Dr. Kolp and Dr. Rea will speak about their new book "Integrity Is a Growth Market: Character-based Leadership." The book uses the seven classical philosophical virtues--courage, justice, prudence, temperance, faith, hope and love--to chart how character is developed and then applies these ideas to contemporary business leadership issues.
