Публікації https://lvbs.com.ua/knowledge/ Публікації Virtuous leadership: validation of the Canadian model in Ukraine Aristotle once wrote, «Principatum virum ostendit» which translates to «Leadership proves the man» (or the women, we may add). Given that leadership tests a person, it was, and remains, of paramount importance for philosophers to understand which traits leaders should posses. For example, Aristotle mentioned the importance of courage, justice and temperance. Later, during the Age of Enlightenment, Charles-Louis Montesquieu wrote about which virtues people from different social groups should posses. For example, Montesquieu emphasized that good judgement was a crucial virtue for the rulers of states.
