The Ethics of Leadership — Feb 6 Mpls Breakfast & Livestream

02/06/2020 | 7:30 am - 9:00 am
Nicole Zwieg Daly, Center for Ethics in Practice

Today, it seems common knowledge that leaders are a keystone of a successful organization. And every organization has a leader…right? Wrong! Indeed, every organization has people in positions of authority, but only some organizations have true leaders — leaders with character and a moral compass that create an environment for ethical behavior throughout the organization.  And today — perhaps more than ever — ethical leadership is critical to organizational success.

The Performance Excellence Network is pleased to welcome Nicole Zwieg Daly, Director at the Center for Ethics in Practice at the Opus College of Business, University of St. Thomas, to our February 6 Minneapolis PEN breakfast & livestream discussion: “The Ethics of Leadership.”

Nicole will dig deeper into the differences between these two socially-constructed terms of art as well as discuss the ethics of ensuring a leader is sitting in every position of authority in your organization.

The discussion is Feb 6 at Minneapolis Community and Technical College, downtown Minneapolis, downtown Minneapolis: T Building, 1415 Hennepin Ave. in Minneapolis (room T-1400); details provided in confirmation after registration.  Continental breakfast will be served from 7:30 to 8:00 with the presentation from 8:00 to 9:00 am.  No cost for PEN members; $30 for non-member guests.

The discussion will also be made available to view through Facebook livestream (free for all PEN members) and/or video-on-demand ($20 members, $40 non-members; free for Premium/Sponsoring members).
