Do you have regrets? Welcome to being a human. This session explores why good humans do bad things. Participants will discuss how to better navigate right vs. right ethical dilemmas, conflicts of interest, and trade-offs between competing values. 

We’ll explore why people make regrettable decisions and occasionally act contrary to stated values and beliefs regarding right and wrong. Ethical issues pervade personal and professional lives, and thoughtful reflection upon and resolution of ethical dilemmas—and the conflict they create—are essential skills for leadership. This interactive and practical session will assume that ethical decision making is more complicated than gut intuition and lessons learned in kindergarten. 

In addition to raising awareness around recent research from the field of behavioral ethics, this session also will introduce a practical framework for assessing and resolving ethical dilemmas. Participants will test application of the framework using a variety of real-life scenarios.

*Please note: this course is a virtual learning opportunity held via the online platform, Zoom. The link needed to participate will be supplied via email prior to the first class session.
