The Ethical Leadership Path is intended for those who are already workplace and organisational leaders, and those who aspire to be. Leaders’ success can be measured from many different perspectives, including their progress up the career ladder, the people and resources at their command, the money they earn for themselves and their organisations, their scope of influence and even fame, the willingness of others to follow them, and ever more significantly, the ethical footprint they leave for both today’s and tomorrow’s world.

This minicourse explores the sources of organisational and leadership ethics and their impacts on the workplace, and beyond.
