Ethics in OD
OD Practitioners as Facilitators of Ethical Leadership with their Business Partners
Join us the first Thursday of September (9/6/2018) to hear, learn and discuss our role as OD Business Partners through application of ethics.
Each year, leaders sign a statement saying in effect that they will always engage in ethical behavior. That form becomes part of the employment record and is not mentioned again unless it is time to sign another statement - or until there is a breach, perceived or real, in a written or unwritten ethical code. Under the latter situation the attention of a leader is focused upon resolving the immediate crisis and less on the question: What can we do long term to foster the practice of ethical behavior among our leaders?
Organizational Development Practitioners can play a significant role in answering that question, but to do so we must begin with ourselves. During this meeting we will explore a series of questions about our ethics and in that context examine the use of self as an instrument of change.
At the end of the meeting participants will have:
- Identified the ethical code that guides their work with their business partners
- Gained strategies to facilitate ethical leader behavior
