Synopsis:

Have you ever wondered why some leaders excel while others struggle, even with similar levels of competence? Effective leadership requires both competence and character, but character is often overlooked due to its abstract nature. This lecture, based on a decade of research at the Oxford Character Project, will explore why character is essential for a flourishing life and successful leadership, and provide practical strategies for its development. There will be an extended time for Questions, Answers and Comments. Join us for a stimulating evening of why character is so important in today's leaders.
