Re-Live Your Intellectually Engaging Wharton Experience.
Join us for an Interactive Classroom-Style Discussion on Leading With Your Values.
G. Richard Shell, Wharton Professor and Internationally Renowned Business Ethics Expert, will lead our group in a dynamic conversation about leading with your values in the workplace.
Key Take Away’s from the Session: Dr. Shell points to a better path: recognize that these “conscience” conflicts are coming, learn to prepare for them, then follow a research-based, step-by-step approach for resolving them skillfully. By committing to the Conscience Code approach, participants can replace regret with long-term career success as leaders of conscience. Driven by dramatic, real-world examples from Shell’s classroom, today’s headlines, and classic cases of corporate wrongdoing, Dr. Shell shows how to create positive, values-based workplaces where everyone can thrive.
About G. Richard Shell: G. Richard Shell is a global thought leader and senior faculty member at the Wharton School and serves as Chair of Wharton’s Legal Studies and Business Ethics Department, the largest department of its kind in the world. His recent book, The Conscience Code: Lead with Your Values. Advance Your Career, addresses an increasingly urgent problem in today’s workplace: standing up for core values such as honesty, fairness, personal dignity, and justice when the pressure is on to look the other way.
About The Conscience Code: Lead with Your Values. Advance Your Career. From his senior position at the Wharton School, Shell has noticed a disturbing trend in recent years: more and more MBA students are arriving as “ethics refugees.” They have quit their post-college jobs after being pressured to engage in unethical, sometimes illegal behavior they knew to be wrong. Facing the choice between “career or conscience,” they have chosen to quit, hoping a few years in graduate school will help them find a new track. Nobody prepared them for the tough conflicts over values that are an increasing problem in professional life.
