Ethical Leadership From the Top

As subject matter experts we help leaders  anticipate and respond to changing regulator and social expectations and stay on top of the latest implications from the field of behaviour ethics.  Behaviour ethics research highlights the ways in which a business context  can corrupt its employees.  The continual changes in the governance standards underpinning commercial life demands constant vigilance to safeguard personal, professional and organisational reputations.  We monitor these critical trends and bring this knowledge to our ethical leadership workshops.

Our experience  and research underpins the design and facilitation of  values and ethics “master-classes” that have been successful implemented on behalf of Defence Personnel, Regulators, Commissioners, Ombudsmen, Trustees, Judges, Hospital Administrators, Police Executives, Company Directors and CEOs.  These workshops skill leaders across these sectors in changing societal expectations,  the importance of setting the appropriate tone as dictated by best practices of leading institutions and how to shape an organisation’s emerging culture to ensure employees are aware of their ethical accountabilities.
