Ethics is very personal.  What may seem morally right (or ethical) to one person may seem inappropriate to another. The reality of ethical leadership is that it is never about intent and always about behavior.  In today's business climate of heightened sensitivity to corporate wrongdoing, Ethical Leadership is the right focus.  It can safeguard your organization from making headlines for all the wrong reasons.  Awareness alone will not be sufficient to instill ethical behavior and practices.  It requires consistent and conscious effort to embed an ethical perspective into day-to-day leadership and management behaviors.  This online course will define a framework to make solving ethical dilemmas easier using the Framework for Ethical Decision Making and will not provide an easy way to solve every ethical decision.  The majority of leaders fully intend to live up to ethics standards, but their good intentions cannot fully overcome old behavioral patterns and habits. To “walk the talk” leaders at all levels must practice new ethical behaviors and they become comfortable utilizing these behaviors to lead.
