Simply put, getting Ethics right is crucial to Association sustainability. As we maintain high performing cultures in organizations we need to sharpen our ability to make sustainable decisions.

It is human nature to take short cuts, to skip over the details in an ethical dilemma and simply react in a singular, consistent way. Speed wins over quality. Immediate reaction wins over reflection and a reasoned response. The result: leaders have few tools in their ethical decision-making toolbox.

In this fast-paced session, Karl Ahlrichs offers multiple viewpoints on the ethics challenges facing association leadership and shares the specific skills you need to maintain your competitive advantage.

Key learnings include:

  • How organizational effectiveness is measured in the shifting world of ethics
  • A review of ethical standards in multiple areas of the workforce and our community
  • The four types ethical dilemmas
  • Three paradigms for solving ethical dilemmas
  • A critical thinking process for “breaking the tie” in solving an ethical dilemma
  • Leveraging adult learning methods to teach Ethics and build a sustainable high performing culture.
