What is character? How is it developed? What are the internal resources that contribute to values-based leadership? How do we cultivate, share, and support a leadership culture which emphasizes character? 

The Aspen Executive Seminar on Leadership, Values and the Good Society places the examination of leadership in the broader external context of the tensions among competing democratic values. “Leadership and Character” takes up where the Aspen Executive Seminar leaves off, looking at the internal context of making leadership decisions and exploring the competing tensions that form our internal moral compass. Topics include: moral courage, love and friendship, loyalty, ego control, work-life balance, conscience, and vision. The seminar employs Aspen’s classic approach to moderated dialogue to examine classic and contemporary texts from around the world.
