“The decision making tools are already helping me make meaningful decisions at work, and also in my personal life.”

This half day workshop offers an introduction to applied ethics. Get a practical framework for quality decision making, understand what drives the choices you make and learn to slow down your thinking when facing complex decisions. Gain relevant and contemporary knowledge about applied ethics that is practical and easy to put into action – both professionally and personally.

During the workshop, you will be introduced to useful tools that can help you unpack and think strategically about how you approach life and the decisions you make. You’ll be guided to resolve complex dilemmas using realistic scenarios that aim to increase your confidence in your ability to make ethical decisions.

Experiential delivery uses real life scenarios to open the space for active learning. Course content is delivered through reading, writing, guided self-analysis, group discussion and problem solving. This approach means that you not only retain the information, but enjoy the process of learning it.

The training is delivered across two formats; a half day program open to all, or a full day program specifically for leaders in the workplace.


Upon completion of the workshop, you will be able to:

    • Consider your own ethical decision making style
    • Recognise common biases and how to mitigate them
    • Identify the role of your purpose, values and principles
    • Use an ethical decision making process to enable better decisions
    • Navigate your way through complex ethical dilemmas.
