Ethics Part Two: What to Do When You Find Yourself Facing An Ethical / Moral Dilemma
Every professional – lawyers, doctors, accountants and of course, bookkeepers will face in time an ethical or moral dilemma that will prove to be a true test of your skills, instincts, experience and training. Any dilemma, professional or personal, can be challenging to determine what you need do right away, and that will include confronting the issue. As ethical and moral dilemmas are going to arise from time to time, it is imperative to have a set of steps and resources to navigate these difficult and often emotional waters. Every professional reaches into their toolbox of skills when they need to address an issue with a client. That often means formulating a strategy or plan of action, so they can move forward with confidence.
We’ll look into the potential areas of practice in which you might find yourself facing a moment where you realize an ethical or moral dilemma exists.
