Perhaps no other episode in American history better represents the courage, determination, and dedication of ordinary people than the epic journey of the Corps of Discovery. Leaders know what they value. They also recognize the importance of ethical behavior. The best leaders exhibit both their values and their ethics in their leadership style and actions. Organizational leadership ethics and values should be visible because we live them in our actions every single day. Based on the following five values (respect, integrity, authenticity, courage, humility), the presenter will guide participants through the Lewis and Clark Expedition and the flexion points where each of these virtues was revealed to the Corps of Discovery.

Learning objectives:

  • Become familiar with different theories of leadership.
  • Realize the importance of values-based leadership.
  • Recognize authenticity in leader development.
  • Describe the nature of ethics in leadership.
