This program is in collaboration with the Society of Psychologists in Management.
Based on his model of character and leadership, Dr. Thompson discusses the leader's role in promoting an organization’s ethical culture and the character of the leader that supports that role. With relevant examples, he discusses the relationship of failures of character to catastrophic organizational failure.
