Program Outcomes

  • Discover practical tools for ethical leadership
  • Sharpen your understanding of how organisational structures influence ethics in practice
  • Strengthen your capacity to make ethical judgement in unforeseen and challenging situations
  • Expand your knowledge of philosophical frameworks
  • Investigate aspects of moral psychology, including cognitive bias, ethical fading, moral disengagement and groupthink
  • Build your capacity for applying moral courage


Pragmatic, rigorous and outcome-focused, it gives participants the tools to prepare for unforeseen ethical challenges, have challenging conversations around ethical issues, avoid workplace ‘ethical fade’, and to recognise and rework the organisational structures that can create ethical tensions.

Created for senior leaders, this program is delivered online and face-to-face.

Course Structure

  • Two days
  • Evening welcome event to help participants get acquainted
  • Prestigious guest speaker discussing the practicalities of ethical corporate leadership.
  • 8 x 90 minute online sessions over four days, with an additional 90 minute online follow up session to consolidate and reflect on the learnings post-completion of the program.

These are immersive live conversations with two expert moderators, held under the Chatham House Rule, and a cohort of no more than 20 other experienced leaders. Sessions are scheduled in 90-minute blocks in the morning and afternoon, to give you time during the day to deal with other priorities and counter ‘Zoom-fatigue’.

This online iteration of the two-day face-to-face program retains the essence of the Cranlana approach – shared inquiry and moderated discussion – and delivers the same outcomes.

Because of my participation Cranlana’s Executive Colloquium, I have a much greater appreciation of the broader issues influencing decision-making and will be able to make better judgements.

The Cranlana Method

We don’t teach leadership skills. Instead, we help leaders apply the skills they already have more wisely – by building clarity of purpose and ethical courage. Drawing on a rich history of philosophical wisdom, they encourage fresh and considered approaches to challenges – offering insights that, for many participants, will fundamentally transform their concept of leadership. Our courses are dialogue-based and immersive, bringing small groups of high-level leaders together for discussions that are wide-ranging and expertly guided. They are rigorous, in-depth and practical, providing high-level learning experiences and understanding to strengthen your capabilities as an effective and ethical leader.
