The ethical challenge of trustworthy leadership has never been harder than right now.
We’re living in a time of major social change, generational transition, and troubling possibilities. People are dangerously agitated by uncertainty over what leadership to trust any more. They see angry culture conflict among citizens and between nations. They witness big failures of integrity in public and private spheres of leadership. Many feel afraid and alienated from institutions across the board.
Such heightened sensitivity guarantees that unethical behavior from untrustworthy leaders will inflict disproportionate harm. People trust leaders with authority only as long as that power is not abused. Leaders in our culture are duty-bound to uphold that foundational trust through their actions and words.
This session is meant for anyone who wonders how trustworthy leadership is even possible “these days”. Don’t despair. Moral courage plus basic ethical wisdom is the answer for all times. Whether you aspire to leadership or not, the information and questions presented in this course will enlighten and encourage.
