Andrew took the ancient Judaic legacy instrument, the ethical will, and examined how the writing process can inspire Bill George’s five dimensions of Authentic Leadership theory in its writer. Through a conceptual context that included a thorough review of the literature and a methodology that included interviews with six subject matter experts on the ethical will, he offers in his summary and recommendations a set of best processes with which an authentic leader can create a personal ethical legacy.
