Developing the Inspirational Leader Within – Online


Learn how to identify ethical dilemmas, solve them more effectively, identify your baselines stress level, orient your lives back towards it, and understand where leaders fail ethically.


A title or position does not make you a leader. Leadership develops through knowing yourself and what is important to you, why it is important to you, and how you can live your life in a way that shows it.

This self-knowledge provides the basis from which your character, purpose, and authenticity can be revealed. A leader who develops an understanding of oneself, while also employing a stakeholder-orientation perspective, establishes a level of trust that can be used to motivate, influence, and inspire others.

In this course, you will be guided through creating your own personal code of ethics and your personal brand. Participants will then examine leadership successes and failures related to building an ethical culture within an organization or unit.

    “The mixture of lecture and related videos. The course flow was engaging and extremely useful in my current work environment. I enjoyed the worksheets that went along with lectures. My favorite worksheet was the “what do you stand for” activity. It really helped me identify areas of focus. Thank you for offering this course. I wish everyone of my staff members and executives could take it!”
