Leading with Your Soul Leadership

June 13 | 2–3:50 p.m. ET | 2 CPEs | FOS: PD

A fundamental challenge of our time is lack of ethical leadership. It has been discouraging to see the parade of public-sector officials epitomizing corruption and wrongdoing at the expense of taxpaying public. The breach of trust — brought about by various city, state and federal government officials — continues to fester animosity against governmental organizations. The remedy for public-sector corruption and likely socio-economic ramifications is not legislative controls but leadership values rooted in ethical choices. The essence of a leader is the soul from which character emanates; by successfully harnessing these character virtues, leaders emerge to ensure viability and sustainability of both the organization and society. A comprehensive model is used as the baseline to explore the needs and resulting benefits of ethical leadership. Join us to help build a socially responsible public-sector/professional partnership needed to shape our shared prosperity and regain the public trust!
