This session takes a unique approach to exploring ethics in the accounting profession. The primary focus is on the most critical, and often the most neglected, element of ethical decision-making, THE INDIVIDUAL. This session is designed to take the participants through a process of in-depth self-discovery that helps them understand why they think and behave the way that they do. This enhanced level of self-awareness allows the participants to apply their personal learnings to the ethical decision-making process. Specifically, this session guides the participants through a process that helps them learn how their psychological make-up naturally positions them to be an ethical decision-maker as well as how that same make-up may detract them from being an ethical decision-maker. This is accomplished by having the participants take a personality assessment and then teaching them how to interpret their own specific results. Through discussion and exercises, the concentrated emphasis is then given to the application of their personality make-up to the ethical decision-making process. The session content is then synthesized with the guiding principles of the accounting profession.
