Course overview
When we rationalise something, we try to explain or justify it. Rationalisation is therefore describing, interpreting, or explaining something (such as an unethical decision or unethical behaviour) in such a way that it seems proper, more acceptable, excusable, or just “less bad”. In this short course we explore 12 common rationalisations that are used often in life and in business. We call this list the “Dirty Dozen”. Complete this course to learn more about your own, and others', rationalisations.
