The ethical culture in an organization can be determined by the leadership style of the Chairperson, CEO and senior management. In some organizations, it is made clear that top performers who bring in revenue are highly valued and rewarded even if their targets have been achieved through unethical means. The message to the rest of the organization is clear; performance and revenues are valued over ethical behavior. At times, this has resulted in financial and reputational losses to the organization, not to mention loss of talent from employees who are side-lined because they refuse to engage in unethical conduct to meet their targets.
In this workshop, directors and senior management will learn through case studies, how to recognize leadership styles that could negatively impact their organization. They will be exposed to methods on how to gather quantitative and qualitative information to assess the ethical culture of the organization. They will also be provided with practical steps on how to pre-empt unethical behavior from taking root in their organization.
At the end of the program, participants will:
- Identify leadership styles that lead to unethical behavior;
- Understand the impact of leadership on decision-making and organizational values and norms;
- Develop processes to identify and pre-empt unethical conduct in organizations;
