Whether we recognize it or not, we are confronted with ethical situations everyday.  Ethics dictate how we act, how we behave, and guides the decisions we make.  How do we avoid regretting our actions later on in life?  Regret can sometimes sink in almost immediately, but it can also take years to surface. 

In this course, you learn two approaches to dealing with ethical situations and preventing regret.  Using a principles-based approach, you learn to take actions and make decisions keeping in mind five simple to remember (but harder to live by) principles.  A prescriptive approach will help you embed ethics into your decision-making process. Both approaches are demonstrated through an integrated video case.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize how to apply ethical principles in everyday situations and avoid regret.
  • Discover how to apply an ethical decision-making framework to ethical situations to reach optimal solutions.

I really liked the two approaches to ethical decision making laid out in this course. The first is so common sense, I wish someone had laid this out in a course years ago! It just makes sense. The second also has merits in certain business situations as well. Thanks for tools!

Nice continuation from the first course, Ethical Intelligence, in which the speakers build upon the original content. The materials were helpful and relevant. The case study at the end of the course was a great way to tie it all together.

This course provided very interesting examples of how to apply the ethical decision making process. The course was both applicable and interesting.

I found the wording of the exam questions to be confusing, not strictly based on the language in the lesson. But I did like the scenarios.

The principles could have been presented in a better way, but over-all it's a very good discussion which complements the other lectures

Interesting! I've always done a few of these, but the addition of (or identification of) the others will lead to better decisions.

It was ok. I didn't agree with some of the principles in a work environment but they might work better in a personal environment.
