Ethical Leadership

Embracing ethical leadership is a conscious decision to act authentically in order to make a positive contribution to the world and transform it, which requires deep introspection and a constant desire to challenge oneself. What if being yourself were your real asset?

According to the results of a five-year research project conducted by organizational psychologist Tasha Eurich, 95% of professionals believe they are self-aware, but less than 15% actually are.

In an unpredictable and ever-changing global context, conscious leadership is crucial to making humane, ethical, carefully considered decisions for the common good.

Our program will develop leaders who are aware of themselves, others and their ecosystem, capable of leading complex projects, positively transforming their organization and having a positive impact on the world by taking a supportive transformational leadership approach.

To achieve this, participants will need to work on their own personal development before undertaking the transformation of their organization. They will need to identify and overcome their limiting beliefs and embrace a mindset conducive to transformation.

At the end of this course, you will be able not only to create a space for yourself to lead but also to manage in the present moment. You will have the ability to step back and make informed choices, fostering a culture of empowerment and collaboration within your organization.

Be ready to ...

  • Lead ethically and in the present moment

  • Be authentic, empathetic and logical

  • Manage strategic projects successfully and impactfully

  • Foster a culture of empowerment, respect and collaboration

  • Meet the complex challenges facing your organization effectively

... and drive immediate value for your organization
