GB4011 Ethical Leadership in Public Organizations

Given the regular calls from the Navy for better prepared leaders with a strong moral compass, this course focuses on advanced concepts of leadership development in public organizations:

  1. That are directly and immediately applicable for NPS students;
  2. That will serve them for the rest of their careers, spanning both military and other public service roles;
  3. That will enable them to build character and competence within the units they lead while establishing positive, empowering relationships with their followers.

Our students will become more effective leaders and make more ethically sound decisions as they: (a) assess their own abilities, values, strengths, and weaknesses; (b) take responsibility for their own ethical and leadership development; and (c) work consciously on developing character alongside leadership competence. This course is designed to consolidate the leadership skills that students have already developed, and propel students to the next level of advanced leadership capabilities.
