Ethics, Culture, and Leadership
Participants will use case studies to think about ethical issues in organizations related to topics such as compliance, technology use, health and illness, and sustainability.
These topics are considered from a global perspective emphasizing how cultural values inform ethical decision-making and how different ethical and cultural systems address and define moral issues that arise in organizations.
Participants will explore ethical theories that have been used in the West to and compare these with approaches in non-Western cultures, such as Japan. The course will emphasize developing skills to apply ethical theories in ways sensitive to variations in cultural values.
- Recognizing Cultural Differences: Cultural differences in the workplace can be overt or subtle. How can we use awareness of cultural differences to enhance ethical leadership?
- Ethics and Culture: How do cultural differences influence ways that we react to moral dilemmas?
- Navigating Difference: How to think from the perspectives of others, even when their ideas seem morally wrong.
- Observational Mindset: Understanding other cultures and ethical systems by learning about and engaging the perspective of others.
- Self-Awareness Through Observation: Building techniques for ethical self-awareness by learning from the ways others think about right and wrong.

I’ve been in Executive Management for over 20 years. The courses I took in the HDO program helped me to gain a fresh perspective on management; specifically, on how people work. I highly recommend taking a seminar or obtaining a certification in this program.
