2011 (English)In: 2nd Annual International Business Conference / [ed] E. C. Schwarz, Saint Leo, FL, USA: Saint Leo University , 2011Conference paper (Refereed)
Ethical competence is the ability of a decision maker to use the right way to think in front of a moral problem. This definition is based on western philosophy as well as on the findings of psychological research on moral problem solving and decision making. Building on that a training program was developed containing four blocks of seventeen exercises. Participants coming from different organizations used the exercises on their own professional problems. After training, participants showed higher scores on ethical autonomy up to two and a half years later. The results showed clearly that the participants used their new skills in their real professional life and that they were very satisfied.
