The term ‘ethical leadership’ in our times is something of an oxymoron. So often, it seems as if the ethical people amongst us don’t have the power; and the powerful people just don’t have ethics. But, is it possible to be both ethical and influential? Find out at this brand new, one day course on Ethical Leadership. Learn what the Islamic tradition has to say on the subject and unwrap the layers of this conundrum with IIDR by signing up and claiming your early bird discount today.
‘With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility…’
There is something about power that affects the human condition quite unlike anything else. It has an uncanny ability to change people’s behavior and actions, which in turn says something about their own character. Power placed in the hands of a weak character, for instance, can corrupt absolutely. And nowadays there seems to be no shortage of weak characters acquiring both leadership and power.
We all know it is time for change, but how? Inspired by the example of prophetic leadership, this course brings together three leading experts who will reveal how faith-inspired values and ethically driven citizens can indeed influence positive change in society. Join us as we explore the mechanisms for such change and cover a range of related topics, including:
- The impact of faith on leadership
- How to navigate ethical dilemmas with integrity
- Ethical leadership and the ‘Wise Owl’: spiritual perspectives
- Learn how common citizens can influence the powerful
- Ideas training: civic engagement and ethical campaigning
