Conduct Beyond Reproach

Trusted finance professionals must be able to identify, evaluate and address any action or situation that threatens the core values of the profession: integrity, objectivity, and due care. However, when it comes to making the best decision, there’s not always one perfect right answer for every situation. Professional ethics is about looking at several solutions and choosing the best path.

The Science of Ethics

This unique ethics course delves into the neuroscience behind how our minds work when we face ethical dilemmas and have to make difficult choices. Participants will explore effective problem-solving, decision-making processes and learn to recognize behavioral cues. They will also get the tools needed to handle bias and make hard decisions. 

 

 

 
Ethics in the real world

This course covers why model codes of ethics fail, the science behind organizations' ethical DNA and understanding the psychology behind tone at the top. We will also discuss the interaction between critical thinking and ethics, breaking myths about motivation related to decision making, ethical decision-making under pressure and whether ethics and morals are locked in or can be improved.
