About the course

This workshop focuses on the element of leadership that has largely been neglected in leadership development: Character. Although character is often thought to be a subjective construct, this workshop argues otherwise. We will discuss the concrete behaviors associated with different eleven character dimensions (accountability, drive, collaboration, courage, justice, temperance, humility, humanity, integrity, transcendence, and judgement), and illustrate how these behaviors can be developed, how character can be strengthened, and how it leads to improved decision making and judgement.

Seminar Objectives

The core of this workshop is a model that suggests that effective leadership has three main components: competencies, character, and commitment. We focus on the element of leadership that has largely been neglected in leadership development – Character – but that has been identified as critical particularly after the recent financial crises. We discuss the concrete behaviors associated with different eleven character dimensions (accountability, drive, collaboration, courage, justice, temperance, humility, humanity, integrity, transcendence, and judgement), and illustrate how these behaviors can be developed, how character can be strengthened, and how it leads to improved decision making and judgement. Case studies allow us to discuss the impact of character at multiple levels: individual, organizational, and the broader societal level.
