ByALEJO JOSÉ G. S ISON
Pages 14

The author proposes Aristotelian rhetoric as the model for the art of leadership. True leadership requires professional competence and moral integrity. It is a relationship that results not only in the achievement of noble goals but also in the moral growth of both leaders and followers. For this reason, authentic leadership cannot be based on charisma alone; above all, it calls for a trustworthy character. In essence, trustworthiness is a virtue or a combination of virtues.
