DONNA HICKS, Ph.D.

Leading with Dignity

Based at the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs at Harvard University for more than two decades, Donna has successfully applied her signature dignity model on a global stage. Her clients  include the World Bank, the United Nations, the US Navy, and governments worldwide. She  currently helps leaders in business, health care, government, education and other fields to create cultures that foster innovation and dignified human relationships.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the one who points out how the strong person stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the one who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends themselves in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if they fail, at least they fail while daring greatly, so that thier place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

-Theodore Roosevelt

“Leading with Dignity conveys a simple, but powerful message: people want to be treated well, and when they are, it brings out the best in them.”
Jon Gordon, author of The Energy Bus and The Power of Positive Leadership

“This ‘how-to’ sparks the scaling of dignity within and across us to strengthen human and social capacity. A gift to give and get.”
Dana Born, Co-Director of the Center for Public Leadership, Harvard University

“Donna Hicks articulates for business leaders not only a grand concept but also a practical framework for strengthening corporate culture by recognizing and promoting the inherent value in each employee.”
Kenneth C. Frazier, Chairman and CEO, Merck & Co., Inc.
