This session gives HR professionals dealing with AI issues a practical set of tools to make good ethical decisions in chaotic times, in addition to providing material to directly support their mentoring and coaching of their staff in doing the right thing. 

Getting ethics right is a big deal, and ethics requires courage, especially in a world with AI arriving on our desktops. HR professionals often need help in maintaining high ethical and cultural standards for their organization. This facilitated discussion goes beyond a lecture on ethical principles – it includes actionable tactics and recent case studies that offer participants 'real-time' practice in resolving dilemmas, with participants sharpening their critical thinking skills.   Participants will learn and practice effective tactics for aligning their values and ethics with their organization's goals and reducing their fears of 'doing the right thing' in complex situations.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding how Critical Thinking and Ethics are under pressure from the arrival of Generative AI in our organization's life.
  • Resolving Ethical Dilemmas using structured thinking tools.
  • Preparing for the challenge of an employee needing to address ethics when the challenge/problem includes their boss' action or lack of action.
  • How can an employee effectively 'delegate up' when they see an ethical issue that their boss either doesn't see or doesn't acknowledge to be an issue?
  • Balancing logic, emotions, and courage while making difficult decisions.
  • Building an action plan for personal and organizational courage.
