Ethics for Professionals


In the post Enron age, corporate governance and ethics have become a major concern and is emerging as a strategic advantage for many companies. Top performing organizations have place ethics and governance responsibilities at the highest levels of corporate operations and governance. The Ethics Office is a fast growing career opportunity.

Professional Ethics is designed for leaders and decision makers in business and government who need to create and manage a culture of ethics and responsibility for their organization.


Using a workshop venue, the course presents ethics as a method for evaluating a person’s character and the quality of their thinking. We will explore the relation between law and ethics, and the major approaches to ethical thinking. The goal is to present an 11-step method and the criteria used to evaluate the ethics of any decision or action.

Using real business cases from public and private sectors, students will apply the 11-step method to evaluate a case, and present their evaluation to the class for review and critique.

  • The fundamentals of ethics
  • How law and ethics compare and contrast

Training Outcomes

This course is primarily targeted at anyone who is in a leadership position for implementing and managing a culture of ethics and accountability in their organization, as well as decision makers who are in positions where ethical sensitivity is a requirement.

SatiStar's Experience Makes The Difference!

  • . . . worked extremely well with the departmental and site managers . . . goal oriented and met the objectives set within the quoted budget and ensured the results were attained for the Company.

  • The guys from SatiStar did more in one week than we were able to do in 6 months.

  • Achieving ISO registration was far less onerous than we thought, our employees really rallied to the cause. The registration effort really brought us closer together as a team, and SatiStar really came through for us when we needed them.

  • We started this process a year ago with Mickey helping us create a spaghetti map of our processes on the whiteboard, and then his team guided us through their streamlining methodology and got us to where we are today. Our processes now look nothing like the spaghetti map – and we’re much more efficient today

  • This projected cycle time reduction of over 80% annual cost savings amounting to over 3% of sales, one-time savings of roughly $10 million, and working capital reduction of roughly $30 million really have us excited!

  • An outstanding success with Motorola’s vendor audit! What made this an exceptional achievement is that it typically takes 4 to 5 attempts to pass this audit. SatiStar’s expertise made it easy to avoid all the extra attempts.
