339: Susan Liautaud | Thought Provoking Ethics In “The Little Book Of Big Ethical Questions”


Ethical questions can come up in many facets of our life. What we do in a scenario says a lot about what we value, how we think about others, and I would add that it relates to our long-term well-being. On episode 339, returning guest Dr. Susan Liautaud brings her years of experience in the ethical domain to discuss with me regarding a variety of thought-provoking ethical questions presented in her new book The Little Book of Big Ethical Questions.

The book is divided into sections of ethics that one can focus on, from family and friends to technology or consumer choices. Each section has questions that come up in these categories, and the ethical items one would need to decide through in such scenarios. As I was reading, it was clear that these ethical questions and how we personally answer them relates to how we will feel about ourself years or decades from now.

Dr. Susan Liautaud is the founder and managing director of Susan Liautaud & Associates Limited, which advises clients from global corporations to NGOs on complex ethics matters. Author of The Power of Ethics and The Little Book of Big Ethical Questions, she also teaches cutting-edge ethics courses at Stanford University and serves as chair of Council of the London School of Economics and Political Science. Liautaud is the founder of the nonprofit platform The Ethics Incubator and chairs a number of global nonprofit boards. She divides her time between Palo Alto, California, and London.

It is a delight to have had Susan back on the show for her third appearance. You can check out her past episode as part of my panel on multiple topics including ethics, or our original episode on her prior book The Power of Ethics. The following are links to her content online:
