Ethical values are the “what to do” that guide teams to make good choices. The way we talk about ethical values sets the tone for how comfortable people will be when they need to ask for help. If we talk about ethics only when things go wrong, that gives people the impression that the topic is negative and should be avoided. Making matters worse, ethics conversations focused on “what not to do” don’t say what people should do.
Leaders who talk about ethical values in a positive light reduce stress and help people make good choices. In this course, you will learn how to engage in conversations about ethical values, and how to keep that communication compelling, relevant and ongoing. Learn to take your communication to a higher level and access the tangible benefits of conversations about what matters.
Ethical mistakes are costly, and they drain an organization’s time, money and morale. They reduce the ethical brand value and leave people uncertain about what the company values. Just having a mission, vision and values and ethics code isn’t enough. We have to generate the conversations that help people follow those ideals.
