The Character of Ethical Leadership

Presented by the Illinois ASBO Leadership Center

Are you an ethical leader? In a time when so many leaders exhibit seemingly questionable ethics, we cannot take this question for granted. Join an exploration of the various “virtues” that can contribute to or diminish our professional and personal character and our ability to lead well. Come away with a personal ethics audit — an opportunity to fine tune your perspective on what is ethical and what is not, and how it impacts your leadership.
