Ethical Leadership

Good governance at every level by developing a leadership culture based on moral integrity, compassion and selfless service

From leadership in the boardroom to the pressing issue of personal governance, IofC recommits itself to take on the challenge of ethical leadership. Honest assessments of personal motivation and courageous changes in personal behaviour have long been at the heart of IofC’s core philosophy and methodology.

IofC will be taking this forward particularly through Asia Plateau, the conference centre in India that trains over 4,000 people each year, with courses like the ‘Heart of Effective Leadership’ and conferences like ‘Making Democracy Real’. In Kenya, a team is using a well established IofC-developed method called the Clean Election Campaign to inspire a critical mass of people to commit themselves to neither give nor accept bribes during elections, and to vote on the basis of character rather than tribal allegiance. Meanwhile, in January the Workshop for Africa (a spinoff of the Harambee Leadership Programme) will kick start in South Africa by training leaders to work on issues of good governance. And in Eastern Europe IofC’s Foundations for Freedom programme continues to train young people to be ethical leaders in their communities.
