If Good Ethics is Good Business, What’s the Problem?

It seems that media reports of companies being fined, or accusations of unethical or illegal behavior, are just about a daily feature in news reports. We may even find ourselves asking "how" and "why" this could still be happening with so many organizations focusing on "doing the right thing" and touting a strong ethical culture. Most folks would agree that solid ethical business practices are desirable, good and necessary for business. This program will explore the five challenges that threaten the reputation of an organization, and will present solutions to keep the focus on solid values and staying on the ethical high road.

The focus will be on: 1. Compliance is not ethics and ethics is not compliance. 2. The Lack of Moral Awareness. 3. "Shades of Gray" ethical thinking. 4. The Death of Bland Training. 5. The Leadership Quagmire.
