This chapter argues that, in the complex world of contemporary globalization, we need to develop and cultivate leaders who can show a degree of virtuous virtuosity that has been all too lacking in the recent past. This chapter stresses that virtues and virtuousness should be put at the centre of the stage, not in order to depreciate competition and competitiveness but to hitch them to other virtues that foster individual, organizational, and societal betterment. This chapter discusses some possible specific arguments against the discourse of virtuousness that the chapter is advocating.

Keywords:   virtues and character strengths, virtuosity, virtuous global leadership, the golden mean, positive organizational performance, management theories, power, values-based capitalism
