When you read a headline online that says "Insanity: The Word 'Man' Is Banned At Princeton University," do you immediately think "That goes too far!"? Or is your first reaction "Really? That sounds like an author writing a sensational headline to generate traffic to their article."? As professionals, our clients and the public in general count on us to be the "voice of reason" and to show a healthy amount of skepticism. In fact, professional skepticism is one of the key underlying competencies supporting our ability to meet our ethical requirements. In this session, we'll examine and de-bunk common examples of ways to present questionable or misleading messages. We'll talk about how to spot deceptions and out-of-context illustrations, and how to apply critical thinking to ask probing questions and sharpen our responses. We'll also explore the International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants' proposed broadening of professional skepticism and judgment guidance for professional accountants, and how skepticism is a key part of the judgment we need as professionals to meet our ethical obligations under the CPA Code of Professional Conduct.
This seminar contains 2 hours of ethics content.
