Lead with Integrity Certification Course

Learn How to Teach and Coach Others to Lead with Integrity

Ethical stress can overwhelm even the most well-intentioned employee and potentially engulf entire companies in unethical behavior. Think Enron, WorldCom, and Lehman Brothers. Leaders, we want to help you teach your employees how to act ethically especially in tough situations. The Leading with Integrity program draws on the battle-tested insights pioneered in training ethical decision-making to the United States Marine Corps leaders at all levels.

Clarify, Activate, and Practice, Practice, Practice

The Ethics Innovation Certification Course teaches knowledge, tactics and techniques that redress the root causes of unethical behavior.

Designed and delivered by experts from the Robinson College of Business and the Ethics Innovation Group, each action-packed, two-day session uses the very latest scientific research from neurobiology and social psychology to teach the critical knowledge and skills for leading ethically. Complete both sessions and receive a Robinson College of Business Executive Education Certificate in Ethical Innovation.

You will learn how to teach and coach others to:

  • Escape the universal ethical traps and snares

  • Use verbal and physical skills to lead with integrity under extreme stress
