Ethics consists of the behavioral standards we hold ourselves in our personal and professional lives. We’ll assess the levels of honesty, empathy, and trustworthiness and other virtues by which we hope to guide our personal behavior which impacts our public reputation.
In our personal lives, ethics sets norms for how we interact with other people and the environment. In our professional lives, ethics guides our interactions with customers, clients, colleagues, employees, employers, vendors and other shareholders affected by our business practices.
In our course, we’ll apply ethical theory and practice to business practices and management. We’ll review different ethical systems, cultural variations, and ways organizations are impacted by ethics.
The course will take place on the Brightsity platform, with all relevant materials embedded.

Business and Professional Ethics Dyads
You will be trained in the facilitation of Business and Professional Structured Dyads building structured experiences and deploy them in the class with a dyadic partner.
We have developed a platform that links participants in a dyadic relationship to develop skills virtually with each other. This platform, uses cutting-edge technology, clinical and social psychological tools and techniques, as well as psychometric evaluation to not only measure impact in terms of compassion and self compassion, but also in other very important areas of human well-being, such as stress, anxiety, and depression.
As importantly, we also measure vocational and occupational outcomes to ensure we can show a direct relationship between compassion and professional outcomes.
