I believe that having the right attitude is far more powerful and useful than all the written rules in the world.

This course explores the interaction between ethics, attitude and some workplace laws – with multiple examples of how they are applied in the workplace.

The course discusses ethical and legal dilemmas, changes over time, some workplace laws, some examples of differences in international business, the question of whether social responsibility should or should not be a workplace mandate, attitudes and how they affect laws such as those in Title VII, and how moral beliefs changed over time.

The examples given are from real workplace experiences and some of them will have the reader wondering whether his or her prior opinion continues to be valid.

Finally, there will be a series of tips to make a code of ethics live and breathe inside the workplace.

Learning Objectives

  • Explore how to determine the special needs of individuals

As a JD, the over simplification of legal topics in my opinion confuse the student. As a licensed accounting professional with several credentials, this class seems like a typical college class that circles many topics unrelated to the primarily topic - ethics. Only the Tips of The Trade portion I find appropriate and helpful to students. I do not find it helpful to readily promote ethics in a corporate setting.

This course provides a solid overview of the difference kinds of ethics and morality, and how it applies to the workplace. Various examples are provided throughout the exercise to layout a concrete understanding, including past work experiences of the course instructor. Take this course if you are looking a general overview of this topic.

1. The course was too simple and didn't really dig deep into complex ethical dilemmas. 2. Monotonous tone, seemed like reading off of a script. 3. GAAP stands for Generally Accepted Accounting Principles not Government Accepted Practices.

Great real life examples to tie the material in with what we would really experience. The example where we had to think about what we would do kept the training interactive as you were listening for teachings that would support your decision.

I liked the examples the instructor gave me. Giving examples such as what happened when she was hired, or how the doctor introduced the person with a condition drove home the point.

Course met objectives and matched description, which should be read before enrolling. Solution to example is most likely too impracticable to have been illustrative.

This course was very basic. I found it to be a description of standard Biblical Principles that should already be present in employees/company in general.
