Are you a good leader?

"Why Ethical Leadership Is Important" is a micro course that asks if you have earned your title as "leader." Employees want to follow a leader who acts with honor and integrity, an ethical leader.

Ethical leadership means living your values and doing what’s right—no matter what the situation or cost. It means holding yourself and others to a high moral standard and modeling the behaviors you want to cultivate on your team.

It takes time to earn the trust and respect of those you work with, but this course takes only ten minutes, to get you headed in the direction of becoming a great leader who inspires those around you.
