Ethical Leadership and Management


Leadership in business is increasingly challenging, with increased media scrutiny and with increasing expectations from diverse stakeholder groups, forcing leaders to demonstrate their integrity while delivering enhanced value to their shareholders.

Ethical leadership is an approach to leading people and organizations which demands forethought, planning, diligent application and continuous evaluation and nurturing. It is not always an easy pathway to choose, but one that can deliver significant dividends if applied effectively.

This course provides an introduction to Ethical Leadership and the techniques and tools a leader can apply to transform the culture of the organization to establish a workplace where people feel valued, where the values of justice and equality are promoted, and where organization has the respect of the wider communities in which it operates.
