The Theory and Practice of Confucian Value of Integrity: The Brunei Case Study

Patrick Kim Cheng Low, Sik Liong Ang


Kothari (2010) speaks of executive greed, and here, the practitioners/academicians examine those
leaders/managers who embrace and practice the value of integrity from the Confucian perspective in South East

Chinese sayings and proverbs, the authors present and interpret the Confucian value of integrity. From Confucius

Confucian teachings can bring much peace, learning, and growth for business sustainability.
