Event Title

Mini 05: Practical Approaches to Providing Ethical Leadership *

Presenter Information

Dr. George Giokaris, Adjunct Doctoral Professor of Education, Brandman University

Description

Why Ethical Leadership Matters: “People want and need leadership. They just want leaders who hold to an ethic of service and are genuinely respectful of the intelligence and contributions of their constituents. They want leaders who are people [of integrity] who put principles ahead of politics and people before self-interests. Credibility is about how leaders earn the trust and confidence of their constituents. It is about what people demand of their leaders and the actions leaders must take in order to intensify their constituents’ commitment to a common cause.” (Credibility, Kouzes and Posner, 1993)

In this engaging and interactive workshop, participants will learn how to:

  • Investigate “below the surface” to better understand why ethical leadership is so important and the consequences of failing to act accordingly
  • Develop effective frameworks and mindsets in order to implement personal approaches to ethical leadership that include an emphasis on “integrity” and “trust.”
  • Apply guiding questions in determining what are ethical decisions and actions
  • Develop or more effectively implement existing ethical values as guiding principles for your organization
