Ethical decision making is a skill which you can improve through practice and careful reflection. This course blends theory and practice to help you become a more effective ethical decision-maker.
Ethical Decision Making will train you to identify the ethical issues of a decision; consider the different stakeholders and how they are impacted; recognise any assumptions and salience; and be able to make strong arguments to justify your decision.

Ethical Decision Making is an online course that individuals can use to improve their skills in making ethical decisions. It can also be run with a group, where each member of the group follows the online training. At the end of each section the group then comes together for a workshop.
We provide materials to run the workshops ensuring the key ethical points are identified and discussed. If required, we can also facilitate tailored workshops with ethics specialists.
Do you have an existing ethics programme? Or are you looking to develop one?
The Ethical Decision Making course can be integrated into your company programme. Contact us to find out how we can customise the course to add your company or ethics programme branding, include your company’s ethics code and/or integrate company specific content that can only be viewed by your employees.

Ethical Decision Making was developed with the combined expertise of Honeyboot & Lemon and the University of Leeds Inter-Disciplinary Ethics Applied Centre (IDEA), a specialist unit for teaching, research, training and consultancy in applied ethics. The course incorporates real-world experiences that address the most complex ethical issues facing businesses today.
Prof. Christopher Megone
Professor of Inter-Disciplinary Applied Ethics
I founded the Inter-Disciplinary Ethics Applied (IDEA) CETL in 2005. As Head of Centre, my prime responsibility is to work with the Executive and Centre Manager to develop the strategic direction of the Centre in its mission to become a world-class Centre for Inter-Disciplinary Applied Ethics. This includes leading the development of its learning and teaching, research and professional ethics training and consultancy activities, and seeking to ensure their integration as mutually supportive functions of the Centre.
Dr. Jim Baxter
Professional Ethics Consultancy Team Leader
My work involves engaging with organisations outside the University as part of the IDEA Centre’s consultancy, training, and applied research portfolio. We provide ethical review and consultancy services, training/continuing professional development, and commissioned research. I also do some teaching, both on IDEA’s postgraduate programmes and in the Business School.
Dr. Elizabeth Ellis
Lecturer and Consultant in Applied Ethics
I joined the IDEA Centre in September 2012 after completing my PhD in Applied Ethics at Edinburgh University. Before returning to education, I trained as an accountant and auditor and worked for Deloitte for seven years. I am a chartered accountant (FCA). I am interested in all areas of applied ethics but my particular topics of focus are the ethics of tax avoidance and the ethics of economic sanctions.
A Course Advisory Board made up of ethics specialists working in companies provides perspective on the course giving valuable insights on the ethical challenges being faced by organisations.
