About this course

Pride, Greed, Lust, Envy, Gluttony, Wrath, Sloth. Have you ever thought of these "7 Deadly Sins" in terms of ethics at your organization? Well, I did in my book, Becoming The Everyday Ethicist, and I can't wait to share my thoughts with you. In this session, we will explore 7 potential "ethical" sins in organizations today. From the WRATH of “disingenuous leaders” to the LUST of those with the “move fast and break things” mentality to the ENVY of organizations who do things just because “everyone is doing it”…

The question is, which of the sins will your organization fall prey to? And how can you, as a leader (whether you are an audit, risk, compliance, accounting, or other business professional), prevent it? Get ready for this thought-provoking, innovative session on ethics!
