Avoid Finger Pointing: Practical Guidance in 
Dealing with Ethical Dilemmas


Session Description

Companies continually face increasing challenges when they encounter large oversights or even intentional wrongdoing – often with no clear path that serves everyone’s interests.  Commonly, internal conflict surfaces and various parties may “point the finger” elsewhere or simply be unable to arrive at proper outcomes.  Ethical leadership is nearly impossible when everyone is out for their own personal interests first.  As we have witnessed, new movements such as those involving diversity, bias, harassment, and others in headlines and social media, the problems can escalate quickly.  When companies fail to take necessary steps soon after the problem surfaces – they are often later forced to take much greater measures such as executive terminations, restructuring, and more public apologies with significant reputational damage. Understanding HR’s role in facilitating reasonable planning, escalations, and responses may serve to help your companies avoid the problems in the first place – or be instrumental in effectively resolving the matter early.

This session will focus on:
1) Fundamentals of ethical decision-making
2) HR’s unique role in facilitating the process
3) Common mistakes to avoid
4) Practical techniques that you can implement immediately for success.
