Moral Authority

Course Description:

So many leadership courses are being offered today in schools and business conferences. How many of those courses teach students, above all, to lead morally?  How many teach students to embrace accountability?  And tell the truth?  Moral leaders submit to truth.  They are truthful, not merely persuasive.  They are good shepherds, not hirelings.  They don't compromise their integrity.  They don't justify bad behavior.  Instead, they take responsibility for themselves.  They are humble enough to take ownership, even of problems they themselves did not cause.  Moral leaders are not afraid to do what's right—they're afraid to do what's wrong.  They fear the Lord.  In this course students will be challenged to resolve to become moral leaders.  They will analyze and reflect on their relationship with authority and examine the morality of leadership in the area of their interest. 


Key Questions To Be Explored:

  • What is your relationship with authority? 

  • What's the difference between seeking power and seeking truth?

  • What core values do moral leaders live by?  Are you living by your own stated core values?

  • What does history, including Scripture, say about moral leadership?  What does philosophy say?
