Learn how to lead with integrity and inspire others with this ethical leadership training course. You will explore the principles and practices of ethical leadership in different contexts and scenarios, and develop your own moral compass.

Ethical leadership is more than just following the rules or avoiding scandals. It is about creating a positive impact on the people, the organisations, and the world around you. Ethical leaders are not only respected and trusted, but also admired and emulated.

In this course, you will discover the ethical leadership framework, a set of guidelines and tools to help you navigate the complex and often ambiguous situations that leaders face. You will also learn from real-life examples of ethical and unethical leaders, and analyse their actions and consequences.

The course is divided into five main topics:

Leadership, followership and ethical context: In this part, you will learn what it means to be a leader and a follower, and how ethics play a role in both. You will also discover your own ethical awareness and map your moral compass, a tool that will help you navigate the moral landscape.
