Why do good people do bad things? We all automatically default to “I’d never do that” as an instinctive reaction to all those highly publicized stories about corporate malfeasance. However, the reality is, many of those involved in these situations had the exact same perspective as you do now before they found themselves in trouble.

In this course, we look at our own susceptibility to engage in unethical actions, behaviors, and decisions.  It’s a shockingly slippery slope that anyone can fall into under the right circumstances.  Learn to recognize our own infallible human characteristics to help avoid regretting the decisions we make.

 

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize situations that unwittingly cause us to set aside our morals
  • Identify ethical dilemmas in our everyday, they are all around us whether we know it or not
  • Recognize how the human mind can re-characterize situations to allow us to rationalize unethical behavior and/or decisions

This met my needs for ethics. The actual illustrations were meaningful. I would like to have seen a refresh on the content with the cases presented rather than having to google for the update. Otherwise, ethics courses are never necessarily exciting, but they are a means to recalibrate and maintain an awareness to the exposure for ethical dilemmas.

This may have been the best e-learning I have ever done. I say that without sarcasm. I learned so much in this. The content, stories, passion of the speakers, etc. rang true here and I will remember it for a long time to come.

This is a great finish to the four ethical courses provided by these two interesting instructors. It contains more info that is useful in the auditing spectrum of accounting, rather than in industry, where I work.

Очень интересные истории про Deloitte и этику. Но вопросы конечно сложноваты и далеки от темы

Great presentation by the speakers including slides that were well supported by examples. The last example (Livent) was a nice way to bring it all together.

The course was informative and an eye opening lesson. Sometimes we think we know what is ethical but after taking this course it was pretty insightful.

This was an interesting course which provided examples of why people felt comfortable ignoring the obvious for personal gain.

A very concise, yet comprehensive course on ethics and how easily we as individuals can make mistakes and poor decisions.
