This webinar begins with a discussion of the customary ways in which most people think of integrity and civility. For instance, an innate skill, something you either have or don’t have, an act of holding fast to conviction, right vs. wrong, good manners, the “golden rule”, and so forth. We will invite participants to question whether customary definitions serve as practical guides to real-life problem-solving situations. We will explore the terrain beyond the commonplace and set the stage for more thoughtful focus on the qualities of values-based leadership. Specifically, integrity and civility will be developed as interdependent learned skills, not the product of innate talent or the natural inclination of well-mannered people.
This session will lead participants toward an understanding of three key leadership qualities—introspection, discernment and communication--as comprising the foundation of public integrity. Participants will begin to develop personal definitions of both integrity and civility, which will be refined each session as new concepts are introduced.
