Impressions from the conference

Ethics in Business and Leadership, “The Time is Right, Now!”Business and Human Values are often seen as two separate worlds.

It is believed that those who are focusing on human values may not be competitive.

Perhaps the world of business and the world of human values are no longer two separate worlds. Emphasizing human values may no longer be less competitive.

Even with increased competition in business, there are very compelling reasons why ethics should not be compromised, and why ethics could in fact be a prerequisite to sustainable profitability.

This symposium seeks to examine whether business and ethics are complementary or contradictory, and explore new ways for business leaders to evolve leadership styles that are sustainable, yet profitable for their organizations.

The conference will examine the need for a paradigm shift: from motivation through salary perks to inspiration through shared vision and common values.

In these most challenging times, is the focus on human values and ethics an indispensable key to overcoming the current crisis and avoiding future crises?

Or is there no space for such an approach? What is the leadership style that can pave the way for a sustainable future?
