It has become progressively more difficult in today's business environment to identify ethical challenges, let alone know how to respond to them. This course will help you develop a definition of ethical behavior appropriate for your beliefs and influenced by your roles. We will address the apparent conflict between profitability, the moral obligation of an entity to fulfill its mission and the relationship between an entity and its employees and the community. You'll also learn how an ethical environment can be created within an organization, and the responsibility of leaders for doing so. Common rationalizations for unethical behavior will be explored to help you avoid traps that may result in sub-optimal decisions.
