Dante, in his great epic poem The Divine Comedy, tours the abyss of hell and learns that many errors result from people having “lost the good of the intellect.”
What might this mean for those working in law enforcement and crime labs? How might we respond to Machiavelli and his assertion that a leadership style built on fear is safer (and more productive) than a leadership style based on trust or love? What can great thinkers such as Aristotle, Shakespeare, and Virgil possibility tell us about practical judgment and the emergent paradigms for public servants?
Ethikos seminars, specifically designed for those in leadership positions, help put in place a vocabulary for understanding these complex, crucial issues. The seminars also help in risk assessment and practical applications to specific ethical problems. We will also examine current laws, best practices, and work through case studies of actual dilemmas faced by your reports in your field. The seminars promise to be edifying, thought-provoking, and enjoyable.
"As the leader of the FBI Laboratory, I believe that ethics is a topic that must be stressed not only in the workplace but also in our day-to-day lives.”
