SNU Zig Ziglar Center for Ethical Leadership hosts State Legislative Leaders Foundation Summit

     BETHANY, OK --- The Zig Ziglar Center for Ethical Leadership at Southern Nazarene University (SNU) hosts and provides Leadership Summits for educational and professional development. Professionals from a range of fields can expect to gain immediately applicable knowledge and skill to make a difference in their personal lives and the lives of their organization. 

The Zig Ziglar Center for Ethical Leadership at Southern Nazarene University recently presented “Doing the Right Thing: Restoring Institutional Integrity and Regaining Public Trust,” an interactive program designed to help legislative members identify and avoid the pitfalls that have tripped up some colleagues and damaged the public standing of the legislative institution. The Leadership Summit was held at Southern Nazarene University 6729 N.W. 39th in Bethany, Oklahoma, on September 17 - 20, 2009.    

Speakers included seasoned legislative leaders; James Ziglar, former Clerk of the United States Senate and longtime public servant; Brian Flanagan, Director of Training for Ziglar, Inc.; and Judy Nadler, former Mayor of Santa Clara, California and Senior Fellow in Government Ethics at the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics.  

During the program, some of the discussion was on why public servants make ethical mistakes, offer tips on how to prevent members from making them, and provide strategies for responding effectively when mistakes are made. The goal was to help create an environment in other chambers and institutions so that the members are less likely to fall into the ethical traps that have ensnared so many.

The Ziglar Center and The State Legislative Leaders Foundation (SLLF) opened the event to SNU faculty and staff members on a "first come first served" basis.  To view the events program schedule please visit
