Together with The Malaysian Insurance Institute (MII) and the Islamic Banking & Finance Institute Malaysia (IBFIM), AICB explores the concept and practice of leadership as an ‘ethical practice’ through

“Foundations of Leadership: Ethics in a Time of Crisis”

This webinar will enable you to recognise and manage the uncontrolled risks that flow from the emergence of ‘shadow’ values and principles — especially during a time of crisis — and ground decision making in the three principal components of an organisation’s ‘DNA’: its purpose, values and principles.

Join Dr Simon Longstaff as he explains the concept and practice of leadership as ‘constructive subversion’, and explores the ethical practice of leadership in the pursuit of organisational purpose, values and principles.

As an AICB member, you are entitled to register for this webinar with our compliments.
