Confronting Ethical Dilemmas at Work: Why Do Good People Do Bad Things?

Do only "bad" people do "bad" things or do sometimes "good" people make "bad" choices as result of failing to recognize that the problem they are confronted with has an ethical dimension. As a result people often lack the skills to be able to analyze a problem from an ethical standpoint, therefore the role of any ethics training may be to equip people with the tools to manage ethical dilemmas within an organizational framework clearly articulated values of what is expected of people.

John R. Boatright, Raymond C. Baumhart Professor of Business Ethics at Quinlan School of Business, Loyola University Chicago, writes a thought provoking article on this very subject http://preview.tinyurl.com/k8ra24t with specific reference to the Finance industry.
