This course enables Executive MBA students to identify and reflect on their capabilities and development needs as ethical leaders, and the consequent implications for designing their own professional leadership development. During this course, students examine key literature and cases related to the effective practice of ethical leadership. Just as importantly, the current and previous workplace experiences of students provide them with opportunities to observe and attempt to understand leadership behaviour in the context of the ‘real world’. Whether students are relating course concepts to their own leadership, or to the leadership of people they report to, or to the complexities of a Harvard Case Study, the opportunities for reflection and for learning-in-action can be embraced.
