Helping professionals need consistent strategies for reducing unwelcomed surprises. Our seventh course on Law and Ethics uses The Little Prince to illustrate how self-awareness can improve ethical choices. The core of risk management is careful judgment and attention to detail. The enchanting tale by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry offers many insights into serving our best values. To assess situations with maturity we must be open to inner knowing. We will review the lastest information on professional responsibilities. The key is to handle such tasks as duty to protect and mandated reporting, while staying close to our highest ideals.
