Leadership has become an important subject in numerous areas ranging from business to education to religion. An organization or country that is going to prosper needs effective leadership. Ethics of the Fathers (Pirkei Avot) is the perfect tool for learning about what it takes to restore organizational trust in business leadership. Avot consists of sayings of Jewish sages — many of whom were leaders — who lived from 300 BCE to 200 CE as well as many anonymous sayings. It is essential to any leader who wishes to achieve organizational trust through ability, integrity and benevolence.
