There is hardly an industry today that is not affected by regulatory compliance. Companies spend an increasing amount of time and budget on fulfilling requirements and documentation. Yet, for many this means little more than checking off a list of online trainings taken or workshops attended.

This course offers something different. It is designed to move you and your team beyond compliance to create a culture of virtue. Virtue refers to the ability to act with conviction, self-awareness, and personal integrity.

Virtues-based courses and seminars are gaining traction among Fortune 500 companies and business schools worldwide for the simple reason that they work. Employees are happier, the bottom line improves, and leaders discover renewed purpose in their work.

This course is not about vision and mission but you as a business leader who wants to create something effective, real, and lasting in your organization. It will have an impact on nearly everything that you do, from strategy and sales to negotiation and finance. It includes practical exercises for leaders and groups.

Learning Objectives
  • Identify personal virtues.
  • Recognize connection of virtues to leadership.
  • Explore how virtues relate to business performance.
  • Identify an action plan for the exercise of personal and company virtues.
