About this course

It seems we read about unethical behaviour every day. Are there more "bad" people out there? Or is it a case of only being able to see it in the rear view mirror? Surely, if we adhere to the professional code of conduct we can be certain of avoiding trouble. This course will help you refine your personal code of ethics and align it with your professional code. You will learn a decision making tool that can clarify murky situations and help you make better decisions - ones that consider the situation and other people. And most importantly, help you make decisions you can live with. This is not a review of a code of conduct. Nor is it a deep philosophical discussion.

What you will learn?
Use a decision making process to analyze ethical issues
Understand how we distinguish "right" from "wrong"
Frame an issue to explain the conflict - why is it difficult?
