Effective Communication

Navigating Ethical Blind Spots

The world today has become fast and furious – with competition, uncertainty, and hyper-connectivity reaching unprecedented levels. There is constant pressure to either Perform or Perish. In such a context where it is almost impossible to pause and reflect, decision-making is becoming increasingly difficult, and one direct consequence of this is the danger of ethical traps.

Watch this interactive webinar, where we explored:

  • Why is it that well-intentioned good people – like you, your bosses, and employees – end up doing bad things?
  • What role does the human mind play in this?
  • How do powerful situations and organizations systems – often without our conscious awareness – push us down the slippery slopes? Finally, what steps can managers take to lead themselves, their teams, and organizations through ethical complexities?
