The text will show how ethical behavior affects relationships with consumers and insurance companies. Throughout the course material, readers will learn to recognize themselves as a “professional” and will learn how professionalism requires ethical behaviors. Ethical practices are examined specifically in the practices of maintaining client’s confidentiality, making sales presentations, and the selling of products and services.
