Five Principles for Untangling Your Toughest Problems at Work and Beyond

You wake up one morning with the flu. Would you go to work or stay home and rest?

Jane has a terrible work ethic. You’ve talked with her several times, but the problem continues. Last month you fired another employee who slacked off on the job, but Jane is the daughter of a friend of yours. Would you fire Jane? Give her one more chance? Talk with your friend?

A colleague drives you to lunch and begins checking his smartphone while you’re at a stop light. The light changes to green, and your friend continues to read his phone but begins driving. Would you say something or mind your own business?

We often find ourselves asking, “What’s the right thing to do in this situation?,” but when the stakes are high, our emotions can get in the way of thinking clearly and making the best choices.

The principles that help you make the right decisions at work are the same principles that apply in your personal life, too—and they also form the basis of your organization’s code of conduct for employees.

Dr. Weinstein begins this fun and highly interactive presentation with a quiz tailored to the needs of employees and managers. He then presents the five principles of ethical intelligence, shows how to apply these principles in daily life, and concludes with a powerful call to action.

Who knew an ethics presention could be so much fun—and inspiring?
