Activities in 2015

Tuesday-Wednesday, April 28-29: Phase 1
Thursday-Friday, May 7-8: Phase 2
Lead With Integrity, Phase 1 and 2, worked together to bring our famous USMC Quantico Program to business leaders in Atlanta. This unique, action-packed program taught participants how to achieve piercing ethical clarity and finely honed leadership skills for operating ethically in any global situation. And, it taught participants to lead others to do the same. Participants learned the same skills used to train U.S. Marine Corps officers, all applied to Business Leadership, and corroborated by the very latest research on the subject of leadership under stress – from advanced negotiating skills to ethics to neurobiology.


Thursday, March 19
Hosted by the Georgia State University Center for Ethics and Corporate Responsibility and Edelman, the 2015 State of Trust and Leadership Breakfast – an executive breakfast event- was held at Loews Atlanta. The exclusive presentation of the 2015 Edelman Trust Barometer, the firm’s annual survey of the global state of trust and leadership, was presented to a near sell-out crowd. For the first time in the Barometer’s 15-year history, Edelman examined the critical links between trust and innovation. After the presentation of the survey data by Ben Boyd, global president of practices, sectors and offerings at Edelman, center director Steve Olson moderated a panel of experts who reflected on the survey results. The panel included Mr. Boyd as well as Neil Johnston, executive vice president, strategy and innovation, Cox Media Group; Udaiyan Jatar, founder and CEO; Blue Earth Networks, and Matt Gove, chief consumer officer, Piedmont Healthcare. Dr. Olson co-authored an op-ed article on the findings for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that was printed shortly after the event.

Designed and delivered by experts from the Robinson College of Business and the Ethics Innovation Group, Ethics Innovation Certification Course: Phase II, is an action-packed, two-day session using the very latest scientific research from neurobiology and social psychology to teach the critical knowledge and skills for leading ethically.
