This second issue of a two-part Amplify series on character leadership crosses through three themes. The first is well-being and stress management, proposing that character leadership development and mindfulness training help individuals navigate complex organizational environments more effectively. The second theme is the strategic embedding of character to advance DEI initiatives and foster a culture of inclusivity. Finally, the third theme recognizes that character resides in strategic leadership teams and high-performance teams, which has important implications for decision-making, the pursuit of excellence, and performance.

Embedding character is a transformative power, shaping a future in which character is not just an individual goal but an organizational imperative, intricately woven into the DNA of a character-based organization.
