As the name suggests, this course begins with focusing on the self and how one can sail through complex work environments and grow in one’s career. We will learn how organizations being complex entities, can sometimes be challenging, yet interesting places to work. We will learn how to handle and turn such complexities to our advantage. We will also learn that ethics are not just instructions laid out in black or white, but have many greys which require reading between the lines. That how, when it comes to an ethical dilemma, a person’s core values play an important role in decision making. We will also understand how unconscious biases sometimes (read most of the time) affect our decisions. We will also discover the benefits of having a Diverse Workforce and how this could help look at the same problem or solutions to problems from multiple perspectives. The module ends with a very important lesson, which is the need of our times – i.e. Understanding of POSH (Prevention of Sexual Harassment).
