Exercising leadership untethered from ethical considerations poses significant risks for individuals, organizations, communities, nations, and the world at large. More than ever, we need people who practice ethical leadership and whose actions and decisions are rooted in sound moral judgment.

Moral Leadership in an Imperfect World is a new five-day executive program examining this complex issue. Using insights from adaptive leadership, moral psychology, and professional ethics, this program will introduce you to a new model of leadership designed to strengthen your ability to weigh difficult moral decisions and exert influence regardless of your level of authority.

Tolerating the difficult moral trade-offs that inevitably arise when having to make hard decisions in real-world situations requires a skill set that tests the capacity of most leaders. By advancing a multilayered theory of practical ethics, Moral Leadership in an Imperfect World will help you cultivate the necessary skills to make better moral decisions in today's polarized world.
