Learn how to be an ethical leader

June 19, 2012 by  

Pennsylvania Chamber of Commerce’s Educational Foundation is presenting the forum entitled “Failure need not be final, and the resilience of ethical leadership” at the Sheraton Harrisburg-Hershey on July 24 from 8:30 am – 11:30 am. Admission to this is free.

The forum will be led by Scott Waddle, commander of the submarine USS Greenville, and Bob Stearns of Powerful Potential. Those in attendance will find out how they can learn from their failures in business to make them a better and more ethical leader. Everyone fails and one time or another but they can learn from this experience. There will be examples of best practices from Malcolm Baldridge National Quality Award winners. The Baldridge award is given by the President of the United States to recognise outstanding performance both in private and public organizations in the United States. The forum will end with a question-and-answer period.

There will also be a short networking break during the forum where business leaders from the Pittsburgh area will have the chance to grow their referral network. Those who plan to attend would be wise to arrange for a new business card printing order so they have enough to give to those who wish to exchange cards, thereby taking full advantage of these networking moments.

Trust in those with whom you are doing business is as important today as it always has been. People who do business with a company have a right to expect the other party involved to be operating ethically and treating their employees and clients with respect.
