Tackling Ethical Dilemmas at Work
There’s a reason business ethics is an entire university course...it’s complicated. But our very own Coach Larry Seal joins us for at least a way to begin to think about ethical dilemmas at the office, like how to handle a request from your boss that goes against your values. Hint: Things may not be what they seem.
Then on this week’s Work Pop segment, we explore what the 2001 romantic comedy Bridget Jones’s Diary tells us about quitting in spectacular fashion. And in our latest round of Bad Advice, Liz and Rico debate the conventional wisdom of “nice guys finish last,” “don’t sweat the small stuff” and “a promotion is always a good thing.”
Finally, we hear from listener Jane, who’s deciding whether to leave her new job in a toxic work environment without looking like a “job hopper.”
