Leading with Integrity During Times of Crisis Join Rob Chesnut, Chief Ethics Officer of Airbnb, as he discusses the importance of corporate integrity during a crisis.

Originally aired May 01, 2020

Corporate integrity is particularly important in a crisis, when fear and uncertainty can permeate a workforce and a community. Leaders are under a microscope. Their words and actions can have a big impact on trust and reputation that will linger long after the crisis. This webinar will cover how to lead with integrity, even when making difficult decisions.

Key audience takeaways:

- Stay true to your values even during times of crisis.
- Anticipate new ethical blindspots and adapt your integrity code accordingly.
- Update your communication style to reassure rattled employees.
- Support your local communities and non-traditional employees.
- Build good will with acts of kindness and sacrifice.
