The Joshua Trust presents ethical leadership training and development opportunities to participants from various backgrounds, tailored to the participants’ and organisations’ needs.

These Ethical Leadership Workshops are designed to bridge the gap from theory to practice through experiential exercises.  The workshops are structured to ensure that each teaching, activity and interaction leads to strengthening personal leadership skills and ethical conduct.

On the Ethical Leadership Workshops the mornings are spent giving participants theoretical interactive presentations on Transformational Leadership, Effective Communication, Value Based Decision Making and how to work in Small Groups.  In the afternoons participants are divided into groups of six to eight for facilitated experiential exercises where participants are given opportunities to put the newly acquired knowledge into practice – experiencing leading, following and communicating.  The exercises are specifically designed to give participants a safe environment where they can practice new skills and abilities.

To ensure maximum personal attention by the facilitators and give each participant optimum development opportunity the workshops are limited to a maximum of 30 participants.  A minimum of 12 participants are required to ensure good interpersonal communication and leadership learning.  The Ethical Leadership Workshops are typically presented to two target groups, namely:
