Ethical Leadership

MAS 620

Course Description: In this course, you will develop your own ethical leadership perspective and connect it to your own work experiences and goals. We start by reflecting on different types of leadership and relating these to your own core values. Next, we’ll identify common ethical frameworks and behaviors people bring to the workplace, and we’ll practice developing empathy and resolving conflicts that happen when these worldviews clash. We’ll explore successful examples of companies that have consciously balanced the tradeoffs of sustainability and profit. We’ll also analyze cases where there have been failures in ethical leadership and generate ideas for creating an organizational culture that makes these failures less likely. Finally, we’ll expand our scope to include leading ethically over the long-term, with virtual teams, and in global organizational settings.
