Business Ethics



A major problem with business ethics is the lack of a universal definition of ethics and no agreement on appropriate behaviors.  How do business people resolve issues involving questionable ethics?  Unfortunately, there is no “one right answer.”  Rather, a “best” answer to the tough questions they face emerges based on the results of a process of inquiry.  This workshop is designed to: explore how issues of ethics affect business operations; expose you to a variety of ethical issues; and provide you an opportunity to analyze situations, explore alternatives, and exercise good judgment so that you are better prepared to handle ethically challenging situations as they arise.
