OK Ethics Presents: 

“Ethical Decision Making Under Pressure”

Richard Kyte
Author and Endowed Professor/Director of the DB Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership, Viterbo University

 Thursday,  May 20, 2021 

11:30 - 12:30

Recommended for 1 CPE in Ethics at the basic level.
Program is suitable at the basic level for individuals who have routine interactions with others that could potentially lead to contentious conversations. 

OK Ethics makes no guarantees as it is up to the individual practitioner to determine relevance to their specific area of practice.


About the Program:

 When we examine the history of ethical failings in organizations, we find that most failures do not come from intentional wrongdoing but rather from miscommunication, ignorance, or mistakes. And the likelihood of such failures is greatly increased in circumstances of pressure and stress which is all too common in the modern workplace.


This presentation will focus on two key ways to reduce the negative impacts of pressure:

1. Creating an intentional culture of kindness and trust

2. Adopting a clear, intuitive, and widely used method for discussing difficult decisions. 


About the Speaker:

Rick Kyte is the Endowed Professor and Director of the D. B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership at Viterbo University in La Crosse, Wisconsin where he teaches a variety of ethics courses dealing with issues in business, leadership, and the environment.  He received his Ph.D. in philosophy from The Johns Hopkins University in 1994. 

He is the author of several books and writes a regular column for Lee Enterprises newspapers titled “The Ethical Life.”  He is asked to speak frequently on the topics of servant leadership and ethical decision making.
