Workshop Summary

Management theories and the mantras that go with them are what leaders live by: Incentives work, motivation through goals, and all memorialized with pictures of mountain climbers achieving their goals. However, those management theories and mantras can wreak havoc on the ethical culture of an organization. A look at the risks of following management theories and reciting mantras and their impact on decisions employees make, often resulting in fines and restrictions on the organization.

Workshop Objectives

  • Will be able to list the management theories and mantras that can have a negative effect on ethical culture
  • Will have a set of tools to implement in order to have employees achieve goals, but all within the ethical boundaries and values of the organization
  • Will be able to provide a framework for analyzing ethical issues and learn cultural monitoring tools
