Ethics & Leadership Programming

"What a man’s mind can create, man’s character can control."

                                                                                             ~Thomas Edison

The Emerald Bay Academy of Ethics and Leadership has undertaken to become a leading provider of training in the fields of ethics and of leadership.  The rigorous approach to each of these fields has brought the Academy to the forefront.  Our ethics activities foster a deeper understanding of the values stated in the Scout Law, embrace the teachings of Aristotle, include opportunities for discussion of right versus right dilemmas, and involve participants in role plays in which players are invited to consider options and consequences of making the wrong decisions.  Participants are encouraged to develop and internalize a personal code of ethics which conforms to the values studied. The Academy provides services to the summer Boy Scouting program, and in the spring and fall, to the environmental education providers as well as weekend YMCA and other groups.  We are able to provide ethics activities which support the values of our guests.

With respect to leadership training, we are again moving to the forefront.  Our leadership programs borrow from some of the most well known and successful leadership organizations in the world.  These include the United States Military and corporations well known for the quality of their servant leadership approach.
