Leadership and Integrity in Combating Organizational Corruption and Money Laundering

This conference on Leadership & Integrity in Combating Organizational Corruption and Money Laundering in Dubai is designed to heighten participant’s positive impact as leaders. Senior level executives are highly influential, as well as conspicuous role models for their people, so they need to model positive, proactive behaviour.

Specific objective includes:

  • To identify areas within decentralized governance structures where effective leadership is required to combat corrupts.
  • To examine how leadership can be employed to curb corruption within the district Assembly system.
  • To explore further strategies for using leadership to reduce political influence on decentralized governance system so as to minimize corruption in their operations.
  • To identify challenges facing leadership of decentralized organizations in curbing corruption.

During the event we shall focus on the priorities and skills within a leader’s specific role to combat Organizational Corruption and Money Laundering in an effective manner.

We shall distinguish leadership from management, enable participants to match their styles to any given situation, and guide them through three vital leadership behaviours:

  • Communicating your vision
  • Empowering others to act
  • Self Accountability and Responsibility Assumption
  • Encouraging the ‘heart’ (inspiring and motivating people

We shall also emphasise the leader’s role as a coach; someone who creates goals with individual team members and then helps them to develop and grow through challenge, education and feedback. We’ll also take a fresh look at motivation, exploding some cliches about the subject and asserting what really drives people towards excellence.
