22nd September 2022, 4:00pm to 5:30pm BST
Facilitated by Anton Smith, this series of Business Circles will centre around Leadership Values with reference to the Initiatives of Change’s Core Values identified below.
The question will be how Leaders can incorporate these values into their organisations. Of course, all 6 Values are interrelated – we can’t have Honesty without Trust Building but within each topic there are distinct aspects that matter.
4. PURITY OF MOTIVE
5. TRUST BUILDING / COOPERATION
6. QUIET TIME
Business Circle 1 – HONESTY.
We’ll look at how Leaders can develop the courage for personal Honesty and to foster a culture of Honesty in their organisations and the need to adhere to truth, justice and lawfulness. This is against a background of widespread dishonesty and spin-doctoring in many commercial organisations and government. This includes an avoidance of responsibility for mistakes made and an unwillingness to disclose vulnerabilities (the “Cover-Up Culture”). Examples of bullying cultures have been discussed in previous Circles and how this can prevent Honesty due to fear.
