CEO Vanessa Pigrum, says, “We are very excited to announce the launch of our new program, Executive Ethics. The demand for Cranlana Centre’s programs is consistently high and we recognised the opportunity to design a targeted ethics program with time poor senior leaders in mind. There is no shortage of evidence pointing to the need for a deeper understanding of ethical leadership across all sectors of society, and we hope the addition of the Executive Ethics program will provide more leaders with an opportunity to refine their critical reasoning and ethical decision-making skills.”
“The Executive Ethics program has been designed to complement our existing programs, the Executive Colloquium and Vincent Fairfax Fellowship, and to provide leaders with an accessible two-day offering that still offers a rare opportunity for deep reflection and learning. The Executive Ethics program will help to build and refine the moral courage leaders require to lead for the good of the organisations they work in and society more broadly.”See More

In evidence to the Commission, former Treasury Secretary and NAB chair Dr Ken Henry pondered whether the cause of business misconduct might be capitalism itself. “The capitalist model is that businesses have no responsibility other than to maximise profits for shareholders,” said Henry. The consequence of this mindset, he argued, is that customers are treated in an instrumental fashion: as a means to profit rather than as human beings with rights and interests. This same might be said for the environment, or animals. If profit is King, who or what plays the role of serf?

Billionaire Warren Buffett advises leaders when selecting top talent to most keenly value integrity of all traits.
“We look for three things when we hire people. We look for intelligence, we look for initiative or energy, and we look for integrity. And if they don’t have the latter, the first two will kill you, because if you’re going to get someone without integrity, you want them lazy and dumb.”
This article explored six fundamental traits embodied by leaders with integrity.
