Leadership and ethics are being challenged in new ways like never before in the modern era. Our professional and public space is overrun with corporate scandals, government ethical failures, non-compliant accounting, financial reports, and even misleading “tweets” that contribute to what a recent former Secretary of State called a “crisis in integrity and ethics.” The accounting profession is one of the primary guardians of keeping commercial, governmental, and nonprofit organizational behavior within ethical bounds. Just citing a moral rule and even mentioning the risks associated with that rule’s violations is no longer enough to secure individuals and organizations’ ethical behavior.
This webinar will teach you about successful leadership strategies that promote ethical behavior and enhance your reputation as a leader in ethics in the accounting profession.
