Ethical Leadership Training Programme

“…By the grace of Grace, We will perform in measure, time and place.”


What the Programme is about:

This programme focuses on ethical leadership and its power to charge an enterprise with meaning and purpose. It also looks at the shadow side - the perils of unchecked ambition - while exploring the remedies available to organisations that have lost their way.

Shakespeare’s psychological thriller offers us the contrasting stories of two leaders. Macbeth, corrupted by the seductive lure of power, degenerates from war hero to murderous tyrant. Malcom, by contrast, bides his time, learning the arts of good leadership and forging the alliances necessary for him to restore enlightened rule to Scotland.

Depending on what is driving it, ambition can be a spur to successful action or a catalyst for disaster. This programme helps unearth the hidden motives that will determine which outcome ensues. It provides tools for dealing with dangerous behaviour that could derail an enterprise, while demonstrating how leading with ethical integrity motivates and inspires.


Who is it for?

  • Groups looking for stable leadership after difficult or unsettled periods
  • Organisations facing ethical dilemmas in need of ethical leadership
  • Businesses coming to terms with complex take-overs or mergers
  • Leaders seeking better understanding of their own and others’ leadership styles and their consequences

“One of the best practical leadership events I have attended”

“I never thought Shakespeare would teach me leadership but he’s been the best teacher yet”



The theme of this programme is influence: how to cultivate it and how to use it wisely.

Shakespeare’s most political play tells the story of four men vying for power: Julius Caesar, Brutus, Cassius and Mark Antony. The differing fates of the main characters reflect their varying abilities to gauge the temperature of the times and to mobilise support for their positions.
