The Dilemma of Ethics

Pursuing Good Decisions in the Gray

Gray can be a scary color. The "in-between" can be a challenging place to stand. There is safety in clear right and wrong. When we find ourselves in a situation that does not presents us with the clarity we prefer, it can be difficult to navigate.

Review Our Own Ethics

Keep The Client First

At the heart of the code of ethics is doing what is best for the client. It can be helpful to try and run through each possible decision we are considering and see the potential impact that each choice will have for our client. If our intentions are aimed at prioritizing the client's best interests, we will at least be heading in the right general direction.
