Description: Trust facilitates the democratic process and trust in government is alarmingly low.  An ethical organizational structure is imperative to building and maintaining trust and to long term organizational success.  Ethical organizational leadership is the answer to increasing and maintaining trust in government organizations as well as maintaining the engagement and commitment of those involved in the work of the organization. It requires the organizational leader to commit to the study and development of ethical standards of behavior which are clearly communicated to those within the organization. Research has shown that organizational leaders who communicate and promote an ethical organizational structure reduce unethical practices and behaviors by those working in the organization. This presentation will pursue specific learning objectives designed to assist organizational leaders intent on building trust through an ethical organizational structure. The presentation will be interactive and seek the input of attendees on the information presented.
