The design of this course recognises that the terrain most leaders will be navigating in the future will be increasingly uncertain and complex. This requires a broad range of leaders to have the ability to identify ethical dilemmas, engage in ethical thinking and undertake ethical decision making rather than relying on rules, precedents, codes and laws.
In this context, leaders across society are faced with a myriad of leadership challenges with ethical dimensions. These challenges are being driven by factors such as digital innovation, artificial intelligence, climate change, globalisation, social media and resource depletion. In addition, there are increasing expectations from customers, employees, investors and communities for businesses to uphold the highest ethical principles and deliver a positive impact to society and the environment.
