“I Am Right. You Are Wrong.”

by Katarina Hanifan, ’19

I recently attended a workshop put on by the Career and Leadership Development Center entitled “I Am Right. You Are Wrong. Understanding Ethics and Values.” This workshop is part of the 21st Century Leadership series.

The main purpose of this workshop was to explain the difference between values and ethics, and how a leader can use both to create an effective workplace. Ethical leadership involves trust, justice, and fairness. It involves knowing your own personal values, community ethics, and how to effectively implement them.

Being an ethical leader is important in any major or career. Without the skills of being an ethical leader, the workplace cannot be effective; in fact the workplace could be hostile. It’s important for everyone to understand values and ethics, and learn how to be an ethical leader.

If you are interested in attending one of the CLDC’s workshops, they are on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings at 6:30 and 7:30. Visit the CLDC’s website for more information:
