Yet, even those responsible for raising up ethical and prosocial leaders lack a development model, and specific target(s) to compliment others leadership development goals.

It is estimated that companies spend a much as 171 billion dollars annually on leadership development and training [1]

Yet companies typically develop leaders to address organizational objectives, and they may or may not include ethical and prosocial goals. 

Research demonstrates that companies who are good corporate citizens, do so because they have leaders with core interpersonal values that are directly implemented into the organizations.

The stewardship model demonstrates the reality that having organizations that take responsibility for global issues, begins with individuals who take responsibility and require their organizations to take responsibility.
