In this module we review why ethics is different than integrity: audience interaction will lead to an understanding of ethics as a compliance-based regimen aimed at eliminating conflicts of interest, whereas integrity is a values-based skill in fulfilling multiple duties. We also focus on how self-interest gets confused with duty: scenarios, vignettes and participant examples will illuminate why identifying self-interest is exceptionally difficult even as we think we are proficient at it. Participants will also learn the deflections on decision-making below the surface of cognition, such as bias, self-interest, selective recollection, the illusion of intuition, the exaggeration of competence, the presumption of entitlement, the dulling effect of euphemisms and clichés, and the myth of objectivity.
Mr. Brody will offer the hidden lessons of the practice of integrity that lies in the smallest of our actions. In this unique presentation on the Law of Small Things Mr. Brody will develop the principle that integrity cannot be practiced on the biggest level, unless it is practiced on the smallest level. The implications for this Presidential year will be discussed.
