Blind Spots - Professional Book Club Discussion

Fri, 1 Apr 2016 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Wine Price - Inspirations Room

Join Madison Collaborative Office Manager and book club discussion facilitator, Erin Phillippi, to discuss Blind Spots by Max Bazerman and Ann Tenbrunsel. Complementary to the Eight Key Question ethical reasoning framework, the authors suggest unethical decisions are often caused by "blind spots," which they describe as ethical fading (when we rationalize our decisions) and bounded ethicality (when we are bound by our personal and professional circumstances). In an attempt to minimize, or at least be aware of these blind spots, the authors offer ideas for improving ethical behavior at an individual and an organizational level.

Stephen R. Covey is quoted in his review of the book, "This fascinating book holds up a desperately needed mirror that objectively reveals a reflection we might not want to see. yet through experienced guidance and genuine input, Bazerman and Tenbrunsel offer solutions that can powerfully change the way we do business."
