Ethical Leaders in Action (ELA) draws many of its practices and principles from the rich ethical traditions developed by leaders and thinkers throughout history. Chad Weinstein, ELA’s founder, first studied these traditions extensively in an academic setting pursuing teaching and doctoral studies, and has long applied them through his consulting work.
Today these concepts inform practical leadership development programs in police, fire service, and other public agencies; in health care delivery organizations; in businesses of all sizes; and in non-profit service organizations. Our work across diverse leadership contexts generates ongoing learning that benefits all of our clients and associates.
ELA began as the Hill Center for Ethical Business leadership, a division of the James J Hill Library, where Chad was the Executive Director. The Library decided in 2010 to move the Center out of the Library into the private enterprise that became Ethical Leaders in Action LLC.
ELA’s history is also contained in the decades of leadership and organizational development experience of its associates, who join in the belief that Ethical Leaders Achieve Extraordinary Results.
