Bruce has discussed ethical leadership over 200 times on national and international broadcast and cable television news programs and is the author of the books "Ethical Intelligence," "The Good Ones: Ten Crucial Qualities of High-Character Employees," and for tweens and teens, "Is It Still Cheating If I Don't Get Caught?"
