With the headlines filled with ethical lapses in nearly every aspect of human endeavor and culture steeped in moral relativism and suspicious of any claims to moral authority, it is difficult to claim that ethical leadership is not very important.
XLC’s Ethical Leadership – The Challenges and Rewards Certificate, an 8-module program offered online, explores the dilemmas that people face in their professional lives and seeks to provide practical tools to help people meet the ethical challenges they face in the workplace.
You will also wrestle with the ethics of means and ends in carrying out your professional responsibilities. This engaging program combines small group exploration of ethics case studies with supplemental “Action Experience” activities to try after completion of the program.

As leader and manager of others, you have probably experienced circumstances that presented difficult ethical challenges for both the objective you were trying to achieve and the way you were going about doing it. You probably also found that your personal ethics have been challenged or called into question as you carried out your professional duties. In other words, leadership is a complex moral relationship between people, based on trust, obligation, commitment, emotion, and a shared vision of the good.
In XLC’s Ethical Leadership – The Challenges and Rewards Certificate, you will develop an understanding of your own moral compass that informs your ethics or principles of behavior. You will also wrestle with the ethics of means and ends in carrying out your professional responsibilities. This engaging, online program combines small group exploration of ethics case studies with supplemental “Action Experience” activities to try after completion of the program.
Values leadership is based on selecting, defining, modeling, and promoting values to unify individuals in striving toward a shared vision. Values leaders create a culture of trust that inspires individuals to a higher level of motivation, morality, and achievement.
