“Knowledge without integrity is dangerous.” These immortal words of poet and author Samuel Johnson over 300 years ago were proven true after the recent global financial crisis in which Conduct Risk made a significant contribution to its occurrence.
The vast majority of people are inherently good and want to do the right thing. Nevertheless, everybody is confronted with situations that require conscious (or subconscious) ethical judgements that may compromise a person’s integrity. To navigate the maze of ethical challenges, each of us needs a way of recognising an ethically compromising environment and/or situation and have recourse to a framework of understanding regarding options to consider before taking our next action.
In addition, knowing how to speak up to address difficult issues is one of the most important skills any professional can develop, in order to be an ethical culture builder. This course will look into group behaviour and give guidance on being able to raise ethical issues in a constructive way – not only in the context of daily activities but also regarding ethical investing.
Who should attend
The course will benefit everyone, but, in particular, those in any position of influence or authority who need to set an example.
