How is ethical leadership a learning journey?
“Ethical leadership transforms profits, people, the planet, communities and the world. Ethical leadership is not something on our to do list that we can check off as completed. It is an ongoing individual and organizational journey. This learning journey will bring out the best in all of us.”
The Ethical Leadership Learning Journey
We live in a changing world. To keep up with those changes as leaders requires a commitment to learning. And in ethical leadership, the stakes are high. We need to honor human rights, ensure product safety, and serve our customers in ways that add value without harm. It’s a lot to do.
Once we decide to learn to lead ethically, though, it is a very different challenge. It stops being something to deal with “out there,” and it starts being about us. And that’s where ethical leadership really lives. It is in the small things we do every day just as much as it is in our major decisions. Once we realize that we never “arrive” as ethical leaders, we begin the journey.
