The challenges of increased market competition can often tempt professionals to cut corners or bypass formal policy. Example: ENRON’s board twice voted to “temporarily” set aside their Code of Ethics. The same can be true in our personal lives, as we struggle to balance family needs, work requirements and social commitments while acting within society’s moral code. This presentation is presented as a workshop with interactive discussion and exercises designed to help participants appreciate the value of ethics.

Participants will learn:

  • Formal and informal definitions of ethics.
  • The role of ethics in business, government, education and health care
  • The value of perspective by playing a round of “Ethical Dilemma”
  • “The Ten Commandments of Ethics”

 

Attendees should come prepared with examples of ethically-challenging situations from their workplace or personal life.
