Course Description

What do Wells Fargo, Boeing, Theranos, and Andrew Fastow have in common? They were all on the nightly news for the wrong reasons. Previously well-respected and yet they went headfirst down a slippery slope of poor ethical decisions – damaging reputations, careers, and profits. Why do smart people do stupid things? Pressures, biases, and blind spots!  If you are aware of the reasons the rules keep getting broken you can prevent employees from taking the first step down a very slippery slope.
