WR008124: Ethics—Why You Should Make It Personal
Ethical thinking and decision making rely on our ability to be in touch with how others feel, to have empathy, and to understand how our decisions affect others. We use empathy and emotional intelligence to have a connection with others and “make it personal.” When our thinking gets personal, however, it can cause biases and, ironically, result in overly self-focused thinking, which damages empathy and emotional intelligence. This class will teach thinking strategies to be aware of our empathy levels and balance our emotional connection for better ethical thinking. Major subjects * Using emotional intelligence to enhance ethical decision-making * Identifying biases that damage ethical thought processes * How to balance empathy for better ethical judgment
