Special Ethics Webinar – Twin Cities IIA

May 2 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm CDT

Register through the Twin Cities IIA – see link below

An innovative and interactive session that taps the areas of neuroscience, psychology, and biology to understand how science, emotion, and ethical decision-making interact.  Instead of critiquing how our minds are supposed to work, this session delves into the fascinating world of how our minds actually work when we face difficult problems where a ‘best choice” doesn’t seem to exist.  The audience will experience startling, interactive experiments that reveal how we miss obvious cues and how our minds conjure false perceptions. Attendees will learn how to apply the lens model developed by Dr. Groves and apply ethical decision-making situations.  The talk will also explore why ethical codes have too often failed and how to improve individual and organizational ethical reasoning.

Major Subjects:

  • Why model codes of ethics fail
  • The science behind organizations “Ethical DNA”
  • Understanding the psychology behind “Tone at the Top”
  • The interaction between critical thinking and ethics
  • Breaking myths about motivation related to decision making
  • Ethical decision-making under pressure
  • Are ethics and morals “fixed” or can we learn to improve?

Learning objectives:  Attendees will learn effective reasoning approaches to solve difficult ethical and moral dilemmas, assess ethical culture, and understand cultural influences that impact ethical reasoning.
