Chuck Gallagher Chuck Gallagher
The Human Side of Ethics : The Truth About Emotions and Ethical Behavior
What causes an otherwise intelligent person-a person who knows the difference between right and wrong-to make a choice that will negatively impact themselves and their organization? This fascinating presentation on human values and ethics illuminates the reasons why. While other presentations tend to focus on legal and compliance issues, the reality is that ethical choices have far more impact on a company long before the issue of "legal or illegal" comes into play. Chuck Gallagher uses his unique personal experience to expose the truth about emotions and ethical behavior. With pinpoint accuracy, he brings to light why we do what we do and how to change. When companies help their management and employees understand The Human Side of Ethics, the roadmap to success becomes that much easier to follow.
