Ethics training is quickly becoming the new necessity in the present-day business world. Intended to protect against corporate fraud and unethical accounting and reporting incidents, ethics training aims to instill corporate values, rules and regulations in the minds of managers and employees alike.
Movers & Shakespeares uses the teachings of William Shakespeare to illustrate ethical behavior in the workplace. Just do good and avoid evil.
He created characters with flaws, shortcomings, and ethical trade-offs galore. No hero in Shakespeare is without faults. No villain lacks redeeming, even endearing, qualities. And all of them face ethical dilemmas – both determining what’s right to do and then managing to do what’s right.
Shakespeare's real-life situations create the right atmosphere for examining ethics with seriousness, but without sanctimony. The material elicits wonderful discussions of how to do right while succeeding.
Movers & Shakespeares highlights the key elements of business ethics training by pulling together some of Shakespeare's most famous speeches and scenes, teaching participants first-hand how to act ethically in the corporate world.
