 Programme Description

Ethical Leadership is crucial in any organisation.

For an organisation to thrive and remain a viable player, Ethics should be integrated into the basic day-to-day working of every employee of such an organisation. Where leaders are not ethical, the organisation cannot expect to function along the lines of ethics and moral values.

Ignorance of company policies or national laws will unlikely save the business or managers from serious repercussions.

  • Define Ethical Leadership and Compliance
  • Manage ethical dilemmas and make ethical decisions
  • Identify common red flags related to aberrations like bribery and corruption.
  • Understand the various dimensions of bribery and corruption.
