Values and Ethics are a central part of our lives. They are as basic and pervasive as thinking and feeling. But aligning strategy with values and ethical issues can leave us feeling confused, uncertain and powerless. This workshop introduces us to ethics through the lens of human values. It shows how to be clear about our values and how to live those values. Ethics is the gateway to living with integrity, peace and strength. The scope of ethics is broad. It is not simply about keeping rules, it extends to the meaning and purpose of our lives. The workshop addresses the need for commitment to ethical behaviour based on values and aligned to strategy as we consider the different perspectives people have on ethics, and what this means for ethical conduct in society. We look at ethics from the perspectives of business strategy, the quality of our relationships, and personal identity.
