This new leadership must focus on the people who help generate the profits in addition to the profits themselves. In our hyper-connected world of instant information and democratic openness, the importance of a strong community only grows, and companies that continue to neglect their community are poised for failure. Hope for a healthy economy can be found in the untapped talent of our people—and in a commitment to excellence as the means for awakening that talent. 

In The Best in Us, leadership expert and social ethicist Dr. Cleve Stevens, offers a daring and radical new take on leading that emphasizes the rigorous development of leaders and followers. It’s the people-centric organizations, the ones fueled by a drive for excellence, that will be the most profitable in the coming decades. The new approach, called transforming integrative leadership, or simply transformative leadership, is a compelling, highly effective step-by-step process. Dr. Stevens shows what the transformative organization looks like and precisely how the intended growth for the individual, the organization, and the bottom line is achieved.

The transforming integrative approach outlined in The Best in Us is our best way forward. It’s the first brave but necessary step toward a healthy business climate and a reinvigorated global economy. 


Cleve Stevens has been in the field of leadership development for twenty-five years, working with fortune 500 executives and leaders of most every stripe in Asia, Europe, and North America. He holds a BA from the University of California at Irvine, a Masters of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary, and a PhD in social ethics from the University of Southern California. Cleve has taught at the graduate and undergraduate level at USC, Beijing University, and North Eastern University (China), has published numerous articles on leadership and the psychology of leadership, and was recently featured in the Sunday Times of London.

Dr. Stevens is the founder and president of the Los Angeles-based leadership consulting firm, Owl Sight Intentions, Inc. When not on the road with clients, he is either at home in Southern California or, in the winter months, pursuing his first love, skiing anywhere there’s good snow.
