Professor Roger Steare FRSA, otherwise known as the “Corporate Philosopher”, is a British ethicist, consultant, speaker and author. He works with people in businesses all over the world to help them build trust and sustainability in their organisations, reminding them how to be human beings first and business people second. Business leaders describe him as a disruptive thinker, a critical friend and a trusted advisor.

Roger conducts empirical research on moral character, judgement and behaviour; he is co-designer of the psychometric profile MoralDNA, used to measure moral values and thinking. In 2014, the Chartered Management Institute has published reports on “Managers and their MoralDNA” and the “MoralDNA of Performance”. He is the author of “ethicability: How to Decide What’s Right and Find the Courage to Do It” (2006-13), and is a regular contributor to a variety of print and broadcast media, in which he challenges the “dysfunctional totalitarian construct” of modern corporations. In 2014 he was named a Top 100 Thought Leader by Trust Across America alongside management guru Stephen Covey and Howard Schulz, CEO Starbucks.

Our Comment

"Roger challenges the dysfunctional and sociopathic corporate behaviours that destroy value. He invites people to stop and think in a compelling and inspiring, yet pragmatic way, and he helps them develop good thinking, listening and dialogue. He spurs businesses to build empathic cultures where every customer, colleague and investor is truly valued as a human being."
