Event Description

Being able to work successfully with ambiguity is increasingly cited as a critical skill in modern work places. Ambiguity presents numerous challenges, among them the ability to identify reliable principles to base decision making on, and the ability to apply a process through which to systematically evaluate options for action.

Ethical dilemmas are a form of work place ambiguity, readily generated by the competing priorities in finance and investment business. It is a common misconception that unethical action is an uncommon occurrence, performed by already bad people. On the contrary, ethical dilemmas are entirely commonplace occurrences, and often result in perfectly good people deciding to do questionable things - driven by psychological biases, social & organizational factors, and situational influences that can affect decision making and behavior.

This case based Ethical Decision Making workshop broadly has 3 goals:
  • To encourage participants to become more conscious about their thoughts & behaviours, so that they are more likely to notice, and act upon ethical issues before they become a problem.
  • To recognize that ethical dilemmas are a normal & predictable part of most jobs.
  • To discuss & practice approaches for dealing with ethical dilemmas. 

This workshop lunch session will be limited to 13 attendees. Lunch will be served.
