MADISON, Wis. — A new non-partisan, nonprofit political group is hoping to improve ethics in Wisconsin politics. Wisconsin Public Radio reports that LeaderEthics-Wisconsin is committed to ensuring political leaders at the statewide and national levels are handling issues in an ethical way. The organization recently held an event where former state lawmakers discussed their experiences with ethics in politics. The group began earlier this year in La Crosse and hopes to start local chapters across the state. People would pay $25 annually to be a member. They would receive a monthly newsletter with examples of good and bad ethical leadership in politics. Lee Rasch is the organization's founder and executive director. He says he's meeting with people in the Madison area in October with the hope of starting a second chapter. … [Read more...] about New Wisconsin nonprofit emphasizes ethics in politics
Ethical leadership ppt
By Ann Skeet | PUBLISHED: August 29, 2018 at 6:45 am | UPDATED: August 29, 2018 at 6:48 am One of the strongest modern exemplifications of moral leadership is the life of Sen. John McCain. Not perfect, but principled, humble enough to admit mistakes, wise enough to learn from them, McCain demonstrated how a strong character strengthened the impact he has had in the United States Senate. Character and values are the cornerstones any of us bring to moments in our lives when we lead others and ourselves, as we all do. Even someone noted for inconsistencies, as McCain was, can deepen his influence by balancing imperfections with humility, accepting responsibility for mistakes and reliably serving others before himself. He did this when he refused to receive special treatment and go home before other POWs captured ahead of him in the Vietnam War, and he did this every time he put the institution of Congress ahead of partisan interests. Recently, we have other … [Read more...] about Opinion: John McCain practiced a life of ethical leadership
(The Conversation is an independent and nonprofit source of news, analysis and commentary from academic experts.) Christopher Beem, Pennsylvania State University (THE CONVERSATION) While James Comey’s most recent clashes with President Trump are foremost on everyone’s minds, he’s had quite a career. He was the U.S. attorney responsible for taking down the New York mafia, the acting U.S. attorney general who stopped the policy that George W. Bush’s administration called “enhanced interrogation” or, in other words, torture, and finally the FBI director who was seen as changing the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. His new book, “A Higher Loyalty,” recounts these experiences and many others. He does so not simply to demonstrate his impact on history, but to show what he has learned about ethical leadership and how he has tried to live out that knowledge. Reviewers have noted the influence of one particular 20th-century American … [Read more...] about What Comey learned from theologian Reinhold Niebuhr about ethical leadership
Hours after President Donald Trump slammed James Comey on Twitter, the former FBI Director appeared to suggest that Trump “serves as a counterpoint” to ethical leadership.“My book is about ethical leadership & draws on stories from my life & lessons I learned from others. 3 presidents are in my book: 2 help illustrate the values at the heart of ethical leadership; 1 serves as a counterpoint. I hope folks read the whole thing and find it useful,” Comey tweeted Sunday.While Comey’s book is scheduled to be released on April 17, leaked transcripts reveal that he describes Trump as “untethered to truth” and compares him to a mafia boss. 30 PHOTOS James Comey through the years See Gallery James Comey through the years FBI Director James Comey waits before testifying at a House Intelligence Committee hearing into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election, on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., March … [Read more...] about James Comey tweets about ‘counterpoint’ to ethical leadership in apparent response to Trump
Carlos Lozada, The Washington Post Published 2:30 pm, Saturday, April 14, 2018 James Comey has written the Washington Book of the Moment, but he clearly does not want "A Higher Loyalty" to simply be one more Washington book of the moment. This is no "Game Change" or, God forbid, "Fire and Fury," insider tales gauged by the scores they settle, nuggets they unearth and screenplays they elicit. One look at its austere cover and ponderous subtitle and you know this is meant as a lasting, highbrow work - a big-think story of values and institutions clashing with tribalism and self-interest in Washington. Running through the book, a sort of geek chorus, is Comey's doctrine of "ethical leadership," an often preachy and sometimes profound collection of principles that he believes should govern those who govern. "A Higher Loyalty" is the brand extension of James Comey: the upright citizen turned philosopher, the lawman as thought leader. "Values - like truth, integrity, and … [Read more...] about In his new book, Comey calls for ‘ethical leadership’ but does he live up to it?
