We all know about our level of intelligence, but there are many different facets of intelligence to consider including your emotional intelligence, your social intelligence and your ethical intelligence, which we will explore in this course.  Ethical intelligence is often ignored in practice, leading to regretful situations where many good people find themselves in embarrassingly bad positions. 

In this course, we explore what is our ethical intelligence and why is it that we can rationalize behaviors and decisions that would not typically be representative of our normal moral character.  You will see first hand using an incredible case study showing how a small indiscretion can spiral into a scandal and ruin your career.

Learning Objectives

  • Explore the state of ethics in the world today and recognize that it’s a far larger issue than most of us consider on a daily basis.
  • Recognize that ethical intelligence is both a function of the brain and a competency that can be developed throughout one’s professional career.
  • Identify the different types of means and ends rationalizations we tell ourselves to justify our decisions, actions, and behaviors.

It was interesting learning that Ethical Intelligence is a sought-after "soft skill" of a leader just as Social and Emotional Intelligence are. It was also interesting to see the 6 different areas of "Means and ends rationalizations" and the thought process involved for each one.

This course provided real world examples of ethical problems in our society and highlighted that trust in our governments and businesses are at an all time low. Very good points were made to consider.

This is a change from the typical ethics course, delving into such things as how our brains work and specific case-studies. It was a wonderful break from the typical course.
