"Somebody once said that in looking for people to hire, you look for three qualities: Integrity (character), intelligence (competence), and energy (commitment). And if you don't have the first, the other two will kill you. You think about it; it's true. If you hire somebody without integrity, you really want them to be dumb and lazy."

— Warren Buffet

COURSE DESCRIPTION
This workshop focuses on the element of leadership that has largely been neglected in leadership development: Character. Although character is often thought to be a subjective construct, this workshop argues otherwise. We will discuss the concrete behaviors associated with different eleven character dimensions (accountability, drive, collaboration, courage, justice, temperance, humility, humanity, integrity, transcendence, and judgment), and illustrate how these behaviors can be developed, how character can be strengthened, and how it leads to improved decision making and judgment.

SEMINAR OBJECTIVES
The core of this workshop is a model that suggests that effective leadership has three main components: competencies, character, and commitment. We focus on the element of leadership that has largely been neglected in leadership development – Character – but that has been identified as critical particularly after the recent financial crises. We discuss the concrete behaviors associated with different eleven character dimensions (accountability, drive, collaboration, courage, justice, temperance, humility, humanity, integrity, transcendence, and judgment), and illustrate how these behaviors can be developed, how character can be strengthened, and how it leads to improved decision making and judgment. Case studies allow us to discuss the impact of character at multiple levels: individual, organizational, and the broader societal level.
