Code of conduct, conflict of interest and ethical leadership

We provide a range of nationally recognised qualifications (local government specific) and council-specific non-accredited short courses as well as other professional development training options.

Ethical leadership has been defined by one researcher as being fair, honest, caring, and just, as well as being tough, consistent, and clear in communicating and reinforcing organisational standards and norms.

Councils’ code of conduct standards emphasises the need for all employees to behave ethically, and in accordance with those standards.  Those in leadership roles have a critical role in abiding by those standards, being good role models, and holding staff accountable for appropriate behaviours.  They also have a strong need to identify any conflicts of interest and to declare these and take the appropriate actions when they do occur.

The workshop will discuss all the above three areas and show their interdependence.
