COLLIN COUNTY BAR ASSOCIATION VIRTUAL GENERAL MEETING
JANUARY 15, NOON
TOPIC: Taking the High Road with just 4 agreements, A practical approach to ethical decision making
SPEAKER: Dan Powers
Ethical decision making refers to the process of evaluating and choosing among alternatives in a manner consistent with ethical principles. Ethical principles are the fundamental ground rules of decision making, not just factors to consider. All decisions we make have implications for ourselves and the people we connect with. “Everyday” ethics, is not as complicated as people make it out to be. I believe the more simple we make it, the happier we will be. We will examine The Four Agreements, a book by Don Miguel Ruiz and how those four agreements can impact you every day.
