Good leaders usually possess many traits: practicality, charisma, and diligence to name a few. But one of the most essential features of a good leader is that they strive to do the right thing and not misuse their authority. In this course, we will examine what it means to act ethically in a position of leadership. Some of the key topics covered include how to engage in moral reasoning, the relationship between law and morality, professional responsibility, the ethics of activism, and the psychological obstacles that often hinder our efforts to engage in ethical behavior.
