To Access This Course:

Most business ethics courses focus on concepts like “tone at the top”, “integrity”, “code of conduct”, “values”, and “ethical culture." These are extremely important concepts and must be understood. 

But often, when a professional finds they are in a potential “ethical” situation, they question “What should I do?” It is not as easy as flipping a coin. Ethics aren’t always black and white and there or many variables that can impact both the issue and the outcome.

This course presents real-life ethical scenarios then challenges you to put yourself in the place of the professional to truly think about “What would I do?” The scenarios are all true….the names have been changed to protect the innocent!

You will come away from this training with a new view of putting ethics into practice.

Learning Objectives

  • Discover how you would handle a boss who uses intimidation and threatening tactics.
  • Recognize what to do in a situation when you are being asked to record entries that you know are not appropriate.
  • Recognize what to do when you are made aware of a questionable issue.
  • Recognize what to do when put in an awkward position after observing unusual behavior by a manager.

Lynn's courses are always filled with relevant, real life scenarios, which are described and explained with enough detail to really make you think. I like the options she presented for each scenario, since clearly this is a gray area which is filled with choices.

One of the most (if not THE most) interactive and challenging ethics courses I have had the pleasure to take. Very realistic scenarios - made all the more valuable by the fact that they are real-life scenarios.

I was disappointed in the quality of the slides presented. There were several typographical errors. I also found the quiz questions, especially question 1 to be poorly written.

Very appropriate real world examples of ethical dilemmas and how to avoid them cropping up or dealing with them. Hopefully Diogenes wont have to search much longer

Very informative. I was surprised at how much I still need to learn. Again, I think all professionals would benefit.

The presentation is good. However, the review questions and some of the exam questions are poorly worded.

Found these "what if" scenarios to be intriguing and thought the advice to deal with them was great!

Good course. Mid level staff (non managers) would get the most out of this course.
