Topic: When faced with an ethical dilemma, how can you give voice to your values and contribute to the greater good?
The coalescence between ethics and the business world continues to be magnified by stakeholder interests. While it is understood that firms need to drive financial performance; society is mindful of how profits are delivered. Do the decisions made by the firm in terms of strategy, DEI, and sustainability, to name a few, reflect an ethical decision-making process that the firm can be proud of?
Managers need to be mindful of the ethical impact of their decisions for the health of their firms and society. Some firms are benefitting from making ethical decisions while others are experiencing challenges. The managers that voice their values through an ethical lens make decisions that benefit the greater good...and their firms.
This special mini-class is designed to provide business executives with a powerful overview of how managers can leverage ethics to improve their decision-making skills. Professor Mawritz will combine the latest theory with real-world examples. Learn how voicing your values will transform your decision-making capabilities.
