everybody, I'm leave Jackson, and I'm very excited to bring you this course on ethical leadership. Let's get started.
00:09
She's gone through their quick agenda like this is ethics, right?
00:13
Why should you take this course right?
00:15
Well, really,
00:17
Ethics is all around us.
00:19
It's not just that you don't why cheap murderer steel. But you're always making ethical decisions
00:26
and on the behalf of others often. So, for example, I was reading in the paper the other day about an analyst, a target,
00:35
and their responsibility was to send adds to the right people based on the transaction data that they were doing.
00:45
And one of the ads, they said, was for pregnancy and for maternity things. I've got two kids myself, so I know I get these quite a bit right When when a new kid is coming, there's a way to actually predict it.
01:00
So they did that
01:03
to this one house,
01:06
and his father was like,
01:08
Why am I getting these the stuff for, like, baby clothes and, you know, pregnancy things and those kinds of things, and there's no one in this house that's pregnant.
01:21
And it turned out that his young daughter, his young teenage daughter was actually pregnant and hadn't told him
01:29
so that analysts mean that decision
01:34
for that young girl.
01:37
And when you're making decisions like that for others,
01:41
that's ethics. ***. It was right on behalf of the analyst actually analyzed the information, but they forgot a variable that was kind of critical on Dhe. Then they end up with a really negative consequences for that family.
01:57
And you need to think about that in your daily job. You're often making decisions on behalf of others. How that that that that they might agree with
02:07
so largely what we're gonna go through
02:10
is the definition of ethics. Then we're gonna briefly go through rapers wrong. But really, it's about giving you a framework and a number of tools
02:21
to be really successful in thinking about decisions like this. Moving for
02:24
they were to wrap out
02:28
a little bit about me. So I leave the content community teams here, which is awesome. It's just awesome working here. Uh, and I'm actually wearing the looks like the same sweatshirt in that photo that I am here. It's no, Maybe it was taken today. We'll say
02:45
I taught this course at the my MBA at the University of Chicago. My claim to fame is around travel. I lived on four condoms in one year Egypt, London, Chicago and South America, largely Argentina. Eso, if you are ever traveling
03:02
and need restaurant recommendations or just want to chat about places to go, I'm right here. And there's my contact information.
03:09
I have this picture of myself in my thinner days when I used to run a lot because I think about ethics, like around fitness on DSO. Really, What we do in this in this module is really go through a number of cases that will give you those exercises. To start thinking through ethical decisions
03:29
on dhe to drive success
03:30
and stick with me is gonna be exciting.
03:34
So who's this for? Right,
03:36
So this is mainly for people in leadership roles or those that want them.
03:39
However,
03:42
as I mentioned, the target example is for those that make tough decisions on behalf of others
03:47
and for everyone anyone interested in ethical living, really. So
03:52
even early in my career, I'll give an example. So
03:57
I started my career capital One, which was a phenomenal experience. They had this awesome analyst program.
04:05
It started in fraud, and then I was promoted into internal fraud. And so my responsibility was actually to detect fraud on
04:14
internal capital one associates and contractors.
04:16
And as a part of that, I was looking at consultants, right? And
04:25
who spent money on consultants. And largely this was directors, a capital one. And what you would see is, Hey, I've got some I need to do
04:33
You I right for my website, and I also needed due back and
04:39
when I need a strategy person So there would be three different consulting companies that would be associated with this director in the payout associated with that.
04:48
And so I looked across about 20 different directors, and I saw every single one had multiple consulting companies, sometimes up to 10 20. Consulting companies that actually supported their various initiatives
05:00
suffer one. Right. So there's that one out liar.
05:03
And this outlier,
05:06
as I dug into it, turned out to be the I t lead on my projects ***.
05:14
So for any of you that have done a business case,
05:17
a two large company, you understand how difficult that is, how difficult it is to get your projects prioritized Andi into it into into production. And so I built all these fraud, defense all these ways that people could commit fraud from inside the company.
05:34
And I actually got a business case approved
05:39
and they went to high tea. And it was, and it was starting to get worked on the person that was responsible
05:46
for delivering those defenses. Was the person in question here.
05:50
So I had an ethical dilemma. Right?
05:54
Do I say something?
05:59
Well, if I say something,
06:00
my projects could get canceled.
06:04
I might not go up for a promotion right after the year. Those kinds of things, right?
06:11
Um,
06:12
it wasn't really a decision, though.
06:15
Of course, I had to say something was my job. It was my responsibility
06:20
to detect internal fraud on associates. And if I thought something was fishy, I have to say something and investigated.
06:29
So I investigated. It turned out that he was getting money from this company for his brother's company.
06:36
Um, and you don't leave in the companies.
06:41
I ended up losing my projects
06:43
and moving into a different role at the company. And eventually I went on to business school, a capital one. After capital on and at Chicago. And that's why I'm able to teach this course to you.
06:54
So you know l ends up, uh, sunshine Roses at the end.
07:00
So really, ethics is a very personal thing. We're gonna kind of define that for you there in a frame and decide rapers is wrong. So some of those decisions
07:13
we're also gonna give you a business case for ethical decisions as you move through,
07:16
and then we're just gonna really give you that framework again, is around frameworks and tools, tools, tools, tools, Asian utilize.
07:25
Remember the rifles, right? And then
07:28
you're gonna get a lot of handouts and also components of this to using your team discussions,
07:34
and you're gonna be able to communicate these decisions moving forward, which is gonna be really exciting.
07:42
So, like I said, this used multiple modalities learning.
07:46
So use the resource is used. The case studies used the polls. We have some debate lectures at the end here.
07:51
I want to thank our t A's Stephen, Jen and rob who, uh, offered a ton of these resources for us. And then Terrance and Ken are the ones later on Terrance Jackson and can under help who are actually part of the debate.
08:09
You can connect with me. Lincoln are via email. It's really important to engage in these debates because that's how you learn and how how you calming things on reinforce them.
08:22
And, of course, I'm on discord for those in our creator community.
08:26
This is also largely based on the book. How Good People Make Tough Choices by Rushworth Kidder. I really, really recommend it if you want. If you want to go more in depth into the concepts
08:39
and obviously we have our selection, so don't forget about that.
