Busting BlindSpots

  • Creighton University Harper Center Room 3027 602 North 20th Street Omaha, NE, 68102 United States (map)

This 90-minute instructor-led workshop helps participants discover why good people sometimes make bad choices. Knowing more about the psychological tendencies that blind us to right decision and right action helps individuals and organizations better understand and solve their ethical issues.

People are basically good and know what is right, but sometimes things get in the way of our commitment to ethics. BlindSpots refer to the psychological tendencies that blind us to right decision and right action. These BlindSpots are part of our psychology and often serve useful purposes, but they can also cause us to waver in our commitment to ethical action. This workshop will explore five of the most common BlindSpots in organizations. Participants will practice spotting BlindSpots in ethics scenarios and brainstorm ways to “see through” their own BlindSpots.

Participants will:

  • Discover why good people sometimes make bad choices

  • Examine and analyze psychological BlindSpots through examples

  • Assess and identify BlindSpots in real life ethics scenarios

  • Develop ways to overcome BlindSpots

Nearby parking is free. Participants are encouraged to arrive early to network. Workshop packets will be provided. Cost is $50.
