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

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.
