This conference helps you as a leader to develop your competence in moral responsibility. During these three days you will learn more about ethical leadership on the basis of moral dilemmas from the practice of your work.
You will get acquainted with wisdom from the Protestant tradition and be encouraged to discern important insights for challenges faced today by leaders and to make a connection with your own leadership.
The interactive program is a mixture of plenary lectures and group work. Personal reflection is stimulated via case studies, brought in by the participants. In addition, an excursion will be organized to historic Leuven.

There is a growing recognition of the importance of ethical leadership. We are moving increasingly towards a world that can be characterized as VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous). In addition, organizations are becoming more and more conscious that their goals should be widened; companies recognize the importance of the triple-bottom line (People, Planet and Profit) in their activities. These developments fuel the call for leaders to grow in moral competence, in addition to other leadership skills – a call to responsibility.
This conference will concentrate on the lives and foundational texts of Martin Luther (1483-1546) and from two other well-known leaders and theologians in the Protestant tradition: Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945) and Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971), whereby the focus is on training and personal formation.
Participants from a wide range of backgrounds who have leadership responsibilities in companies, governments, or NGO’s, are heartily encouraged to attend. Participants are expected to be at least sympathetic to the Christian tradition.
This three-days conference is being organized by the Coram Deo Program, the Theological University of Apeldoorn, Driestar Christian University for Teacher Education in Gouda and the Institute of Leadership and Social Ethics of the Evangelische Theologische Faculteit Leuven.
