Pre-Conference Workshop 5: “Value based leadership: conflicting dilemmas and inspiring stories”
Organised by the Leadership Programmes Working Group

Location: CEU – Room 104

Presenters: Emma Nolin, Linda Vidlund, Pedro Principe, Alan Carbery, Gyöngyi Karácsony

Please note that this workshop is only open to alumni of the LIBER Emerging Leaders Programme.

This workshop will focus on an issue faced by today’s leaders with increasing frequency: what does values-based leadership really mean, and most importantly, how does it translate into practice? We want to focus on the foundations for values-based leadership and look deeper into the conflicting dilemmas that a leader faces in their day-to-day work. By sharing inspiring stories we want to create a common understanding of conflicting dilemmas that will occur during our leadership journeys and enlightening examples that will guide us.
