“What Was I Thinking?!?!"
Ethical Dilemmas that Make
(or Break) Your Business


  

“It is often far harder to recover from an ethics mistake than an ordinary mistake. While an ordinary mistake may reveal a lack of knowledge or attention, an ethical mistake colors perception of everything a person does…. Doubt remains about the character of the person who made the mistake,” – Mark Pastin, PhD.

Adherence to high ethical standards is a priority for Certified Management Consultants® (CMCs) and all Institute of Management Consultants (IMC) members. We pledge to abide by IMC’s Code of Ethics as we provide services to our clients, partner with our colleagues, and interact with the public. In the face of daily ethical challenges both large and small, we need common sense tools and practical solutions to address the difficult and complex situations we encounter.

Mark Pastin, PhD. will lead IMC members and guests through a series of interactive ethical scenarios.  Throughout the evening, attendees will work in groups to delve into the ethical challenges presented in each case discussion as Dr. Pastin offers his expert commentary and insight on the decision-making processes required to navigate the ethical challenges posed.

Dr. Pastin will draw on the evening’s case discussions; his decades of advising governments corporations, and NGOs; and from the ethical principles outlined in his book “Make an Ethical Difference: Tools for Better Action” to demonstrate how we, too, can make even better ethical decisions.  

During the evening you will:
Develop an “ethics eye” to help guide you to do the right thing at the right time
Gain confidence in your ethical sense
Use actionable, effective tools for everyday situations
Translate ethical insight into ethical action
