Ethics Community of Practice - Ethical Disengagement: Why We Don’t Follow Through When We Know the Ethical Thing to Do

Ethics is a discipline that requires an individual to have ‘moral awareness’, be able to make ‘moral judgement’, and then be able to follow through with ‘ethical behavior’. With this in mind, the question arises “What gets in the way when we have moral awareness, make the proper moral judgment, but don’t follow through on ethical behavior?”

Join the Ethics Community of Practice as Kevin Cheesebrough discusses and addresses the concerns with the ethical conduct of coaches when they disengage or detach their morals from their ethical behavior. Two case studies are presented to review the theories of Cognitive Moral Development, Moral Disengagement, Honest Truth of Dishonesty, Obedience to Authority and De-Individuation and to examine how their applications affect our ability to ethically behave. Participants of this seminar will be able to better:

  • Develop an awareness of the theories/research that provide insights into ethical disengagement,
  • Broaden the understanding of their application in the coaching environment, and
  • Practice their application to be able to follow through on ethical behavior.
