We are not as ethical as we think we are. All evidence points to the fact our society is not getting any better ethically (insert *sigh* here). The number and variety of recent scandals proves our culture has changed in the last half century to one with a greater emphasis on self. I truly believe most people desire to become more ethical, but the first steps in changing any behavior is self-awareness and a greater understanding of the problem. Get ready to determine what your current “character” choice is and how to adopt values and behaviors that will improve our society’s ethical culture, one person at a time.
In this session, you will gain an understanding of “The Big Me” character choice and how society has changed over the past decades. You will recognize just how common the “Ethical Rationalizer” is and how society can easily, consciously or unconsciously, rationalize away unethical behavior. Then you will learn the characteristics of The Everyday Ethicist™ and how to put those characteristics to work in your life, to influence real culture change.
