PCM 514 Morality and Leadership: Organizational Ethics in Congregations
Faculty: David B. Couturier, OFM. Cap. (Profile)
ABOUT THE COURSE
This course focuses on how to meet the ethical challenges of pastoral leadership today. All leaders face ethical burdens and must make every effort to make informed ethical decisions and promote ethical behavior among their followers. This course will use an inter-disciplinary approach (leadership studies, psychology, organizational development, ethical theory and Franciscan studies) to explore the key features of ethical leadership today, the traits and behaviors that build a strong ethical climate in organizations. It will also study the shadow side of leadership, the unhealthy motivations and behaviors that destroy institutions and ruin careers. The course will provide students with the tools needed to understand the needs of organizations today and offer a positive ethical influence on those institutions.
