Ethical Intelligence and the ANTE-up Methodology for Changing Corporate Culture and Annual Holiday Luncheon
No matter how much it is talked about and regulated, ethical collapses continue to plague organizations across all sectors. Culture is the DNA of every organization and changing is hard. It's doubly challenging when the organization and its people lack a sense of ethical intelligence.
Throughout this ½ day workshop, you will learn how to think differently about ethical dilemmas using ethical intelligence. Understanding ethics is not complex, but practicing it in all we do is the challenge. Ethical decay happens almost subconsciously and left untended can lead to perilous situations involving fraud, reputational loss, and personal embarrassment. You will explore ethics from both the perspective that good ethics protects and safeguards, but more importantly how ethical intelligence leads to better managed businesses.
Finally, you will move beyond personal ethics to how ethical intelligence can be embedded in organizational culture. We will look at cases throughout the course that illustrate ethics at a personal and organizational level. A culture that is based on Authentic leadership, Nimble workforce, Transparent information, and Ethical conduct. It's time to ANTE-up!
