Course Description

This webinar is composed of four modules in ethics. However, unlike most ethics webinars, this webinar will not bore you with lectures on what not to do or the rules of professional conduct. This webinar is aimed to raise your awareness of ethical situations that may be around you today that you aren't even thinking about. It will change the way you make decisions and take action. It will illustrate with numerous case studies that in the absence of ethical intelligence, otherwise good people are highly susceptible to making poor judgments. It is observed that ethical intelligence has been proven to improve corporate performance. From this aspect, this webinar will be very useful for professionals who want to move forward with ethical decision-making in their personal as well as in professional life.

Session 1: Ethical intelligence

We all know about our general level of intelligence. But there are many different facets of intelligence to consider including emotional intelligence, social intelligence, and ethical intelligence. This webinar will explore them in detail. Ethical intelligence is often ignored in practice, leading to regretful situations where many good people find themselves in embarrassingly bad positions. This webinar will further explore what is our ethical intelligence and why is it that we can rationalize behaviors and decisions that would not typically be representative of our normal moral character. The attendees will have a chance to see first-hand using an incredible case study showing how a small indiscretion can spiral into a scandal and ruin a career.

Session 2: Ethical decay

Why do good people do bad things? We all automatically default to “I’d never do that” as an instinctive reaction to all those highly publicized stories about corporate malfeasance. However, the reality is, many of those involved in these situations had the exact same perspective as you do now before they found themselves in trouble.

This webinar will look at our own susceptibility to engage in unethical actions, behaviors, and decisions. It’s a shockingly slippery slope that anyone can fall into under the right circumstances.  This webinar will provide an opportunity to recognize our own infallible human characteristics to help avoid regretting the decisions we make.

Session 3: Ethical approaches

Whether we recognize it or not, we are confronted with ethical situations every day. Ethics dictate how we act, how we behave and guides the decisions we make. How do we avoid regretting our actions later on in life? Regret can sometimes sink in almost immediately, but it can also take years to surface.

The webinar will explore two approaches to dealing with ethical situations and preventing regret. Using a principles-based approach, you will learn to take actions and make decisions keeping in mind five simple to remember (but harder to live by) principles. A prescriptive approach will help you embed ethics into your decision-making process. Both approaches are demonstrated through an integrated case.

Session 4: Ethical organizations

Developing your own ethical intelligence is one challenge, but embedding ethical intelligence across your organization is an entirely different challenge. This webinar explores the role corporate culture has in creating an ethical organization. In doing so, it will explore the core values every organization must embody to create a high-performance and ethical culture.

In this webinar, you will learn more than just the ideal corporate culture, but proactive measures you can take to change corporate culture. Ultimately, it will attempt to ask and answer the question about whether the ethical organization creates another point of competitive advantage.

Learning Objectives

  • To describe the state of ethics in the world today and recognize that it’s a far larger issue than most of us consider on a daily basis.
  • To recognize that ethical intelligence is both a function of the brain and competency that can be developed throughout one’s professional career.
  • To identify the different types of means and ends rationalizations we tell ourselves to justify our decisions, actions, and behaviors.
  • To recognize situations that unwittingly cause us to set aside our morals and identify ethical dilemmas in our every day, they are all around us whether we know it or not
  • To recognize how the human mind can recharacterize situations to allow us to rationalize unethical behavior and/or decisions
  • To recognize and apply ethical principles in everyday situations and avoid regret.
  • To apply an ethical decision-making framework to ethical situations to reach optimal solutions
  • To assess the strength of ethics and the corporate culture of the organization.
  • To describe the value proposition ethics has in creating a competitive advantage in the organization.

The program, the content and the presenters were all great. Four hours was a little long for me so I don't know that I would do another webinar for that length but at least this one was very interesting.


This was an excellent webinar with the presenters taking a very practical view of developing ethical intelligence. I think that their presentation was very effective and valuable. I would take another seminar that they offer.
