Leaders play an essential role not just in making organizational decisions, but in making right organizational decisions. Yet the world is complex, and the difference between a right choice and wrong choice is often less apparent than we would like it to be. The easy decisions usually don't make it to a leader's desk. Instead of considering one choice that looks all right and another that looks all wrong, leaders often confront choices that look like a mix of right and wrong. How do leaders consider the ethical aspects of these decisions? In this program, we explore three different perspectives for making ethical choices: principles-based decision-making, cost-benefit analysis, and virtue ethics. Each one offers a different way of examining difficult choices, and each perspective is an essential part of the leadership toolkit.
