Abstract

This chapter explores a graduate course designed for process consultant practitioners and change
managers on the ethics of intervening in human systems. The course uses an ethical inquiry process
which involves both individual and collective exploration. This is described through the background
philosophy of embodied knowledge which underpins the design of the course and is further elaborated
from the perspective of the professor and a previous student. Enactive and embodied knowing through
an inquiry process draws attention to our skilful action through the challenges we face in acting ethically.
This involves practicing three main methods used in the journey towards ethical know-how: the
Discipline of Noticing (Mason, 2002), identifying the gap between espoused theory and theory-in-use
(Argyris, 1995), and an individual and collective inquiry process (Roy et al, 2003) into ethical issues
the authors have faced in their personal and/or professional lives.
