A programme designed to enable senior leaders to instil ethical thinking and behaviours into their organisation. This results in a positively ethical culture that provides for the benefit of all stakeholders rather than just avoiding heavy fines and other punishment.
Why the need for ethical leaders?
In our fast changing world, an overriding drive for performance efficiency, growth and shareholder or stakeholder value (the standard goals of most senior leadership teams) is not sustainable without providing safe-guards into the culture of the organisation. This will ensure that anything illegal or unethical is identified and rooted out regardless of where or how it manifests itself and that the organisation continues to be sustainable. Rules, processes and structures alone will never achieve this. It requires the creation and maintenance of an ethical culture1.

What’s the programme like?
The programme is based on the Transpersonal Leadership development journey2. Each element of the programme takes a group or team of leaders through a practical voyage of discovery and practice using state-of-the-art blended learning methods. This is supported by internationally acclaimed evidenced based research and grounded in neuroscience that links emotional intelligence, culture theory, decision-making, ethics, values and purpose.
