What drives the decisions you make?

This half day workshop offers an introduction to applied ethics.

Gain relevant and contemporary knowledge about applied ethics that is practical and easy to put into action – both professionally and personally.

Is this workshop right for you?

This workshop is for anyone looking to increase their knowledge in ethics and capacity for decision making. The choices we make shape the world we live in. If you are looking to make better decisions, to create new opportunities for your business, or to shape a better world, this workshop delivers the foundation for ethical thinking. You will leave equipped to work through difficult issues and have increased skills in making ethical and informed decisions

What will you learn?

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.

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.

What can you expect?

This is an experiential workshop that 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 sessions, over a half day experience.

Foundations

Get an introductory understanding of ethics and how it can be put into focus. This session unpacks what ethics is, the difference between ethics, morality and the law, and different philosophical thinking that can help us understand our decisions. We introduce different ethical styles and types of biases.

Good Decision Making

The second session brings ethics into practice. Learn how to use The Ethics Centre’s Good Decision Making Model to guide your choices, and practise its application through realistic scenarios.
