Ethics 4 Everyone
Run time: 15 Minutes
Poignant video vignettes and expert commentary from ethicist and author Eric Harvey
come together in this highly effective and compelling ethics overview. The video begins with the issue of knowledge. We know what's right, it suggests, when we remain aware of laws, organizational rules/procedures, shared values and what our own conscience is telling us. The program offers several tools and strategies for helping people consistently do what's right:
- When in doubt…use an Ethical Action Test -- Is it legal? Does it comply with our rules and guidelines? Is it in sync with our organizational values? Will I be comfortable and guilt free if I do it? Would I do it to my family or friends? Would I be perfectly okay with someone doing it to me? Would the most ethical person I know do it?
- Master the 3 "Rs" -- Treat people and company resources with respect. Be responsible for providing quality goods and services, carrying your share of the load and keeping your commitments. Get the right results the right way.
- Learn To Say No with Tact -- When faced with a situation or directive you believe is wrong, don't go along to get along…state your objection without indictment and propose an alternative action you feel is ethical. If necessary, seek advice.
- Manage Conflicting "Rights" or Ethical Dilemmas -- Use the ethical action test to decide what's "more right", and if you're still not sure, get an outside opinion.
- Walk the Talk -- Understand that ethics is displayed in everything you do… and that everything you do counts.
