From insider trading, resumé fraud, and environmental disasters to accounting scandals and sexual misconduct, news headlines are full of stories on leaders who were removed due to questionable behavior and lapses in judgment. Don’t let that be you!

Ethics is the heart of leadership and ethical leaders who lead by example are successful at influencing others to do the same. Research shows that it’s hard to follow a leader that you don’t perceive to be ethical. With that in mind, would those you lead be morally comfortable following you?

As you strategically position yourself to advance in your career, set yourself apart by knowing who you are as a leader and how others perceive you. Understanding your personal leadership style as it relates to ethics will help you do the right thing in the face of difficult situations. This session will explore the crucial qualities that leaders need and examine the impacts of unpopular decisions. You will problem solve as you uncover solutions to challenges through case studies and real workplace dilemmas. By the end of the session, you’ll be clear on what matters to you as an individual and how that aligns that with your priorities as a leader.
