Register for Course

About this programme:

The aim of this programme is to facilitate a structured response to an articulated need for the inculcation and practice of ethical conduct, behaviours and practices that are demonstrably consistent with, supportive of and aligned to the values of professional organisations as documented in their public commitments. There is an articulated need for senior managers and leaders in particular, to conduct themselves with demonstrable integrity in all their interactions among themselves, with employees and external stakeholder formations at all times.

Members of specialised professional organisations in particular tend to be engrossed in and fixated on competencies and outcomes that relate directly to their professional practice, often at the expense of their ethical conduct and the need to conduct themselves with integrity. This programme will serve as a platform from which professional practice can be enriched and enhanced through the development, up-skilling and multi-skilling of professional practices into better rounded and socially competent assets in their domains of practice.
