Okay, class, let’s see if we can’t get this week spinning, shall we? I know we only have a few people during the work week. (smile) Class, a lot of large organizations have ethics training classes built into their core competencies structure and human resources tracks the attendance, but I do think that leaders have choices of ethical behavior no matter if they’ve had proper training or not. Unfortunately, there can be a lot of “gray” where the difference between black and white cannot be distinguished.
