How do we navigate ethical dilemmas at work? Or stand up for our values under pressure?

This two-day masterclass will provide you with a practical, immediately actionable ‘Giving Voice to Values’ framework for responding to and dealing with ethically challenging situations in the workplace.

Drawing on real life examples and evidence based research, you will gain the tools to confidently act on these values and navigate those tough conversations. You will be provided with an innovative approach to values-driven leadership development in business education and in your workplace.

This exciting new offering will identify internal and external factors that makes us more or less likely to successfully speak up about our values and propose more ethical courses of actions, as well as how we can use these factors to our advantage to become more skilful in acting on behalf of our values.
