The course focuses on the ways in which leaders must recognize and respond to a variety of competing value propositions within themselves, in their organizations and at societal level. Whereas standard leadership typically creates incentive systems, values-based leadership also motivates through norms, examples and inspiration.
Leaders are expected to appreciate competing value propositions and also to articulate and advocate principles and standards of behavior. To achieve these goals leaders must anticipate how others will respond to material and values-based incentives.
