Get What You Want & Deserve In Your Career:
Fulfillment, Advancement, Recognition & Rewards

You’re about to learn the No. 1 thing you can do to accelerate your career growth and how to get started today…

But first, let me ask you:question-mark

  • Are you sick of feeling underappreciated and undervalued in the workplace?
  • Have you been passed over for a promotion recently?
  • Do you ever feel like your co-workers are advancing faster than you are, but you don’t know why?
  • Are your skills ignored, underutilized or minimized in the workplace?

And most importantly…

  • Are you ready to finally take control of your career and earn the fulfillment, advancement, recognition and rewards you truly deserve?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you’re in the right place.

And you’re not alone! We all want career success. But figuring out how to get from “here” to “there” can feel almost impossible.

No one gives you an instruction manual when you enter the workforce. They don’t teach you in school how to talk to your boss, ask for a raise, collaborate with co-workers, or voice your ideas in the workplace. Most people have to learn these things through trial and error and that means making painful, embarrassing mistakes along the way.

That’s why they end up feeling stagnant and unsatisfied, and why they don’t advance “up the career ladder” as quickly as they had hoped.

What if you could learn these kinds of professional skills, along with the most up-to-date career management techniques, without ever leaving your desk?

NOW YOU CAN…
Thanks to the Career Academy

Ethics & Integrity in the Workplace: Exploring Critical Concepts, Concerns and Dilemmas

While the law describes an individual’s rights and the necessary conditions that must be met to avoid punishment, ethics and integrity describe the moral choices that individuals make—even when “punishment” isn’t necessarily an immediate threat. Legal issues are often black and white, but ethical ones leave many shades of grey to ponder. In the workplace, these ethical quandaries (when not handled appropriately) can have a devastating impact on your career.

Learning Highlights:

  • Why ethics and integrity are an essential part of success for you as a professional and for your company as a whole.
  • Understanding the consequences of ethical lapses in the workplace.
  • Examples of “hidden” ethical failures you may be unintentionally falling victim to.
  • How to address ethical dilemmas if and when they arise.
  • How and when to address ethical concerns about other employees.
  • Specific workplace behaviors every employee should embrace to help create a culture of ethics and integrity.
