“Your ethical system is your map of the good life.” — M. Scott Peck
“Only a human being is capable of being ethical; not abstract things like companies, government, media.” — W. Robert Thompson, Attorney and Ethics Specialist
“It is impossible for us to break the law. We can only break ourselves against the law.” — Cecil B. deMille commenting on his movie, The Ten Commandments
“The ideals which have always shone before me and filled me with the joy of living are goodness, beauty, and truth. To make a goal of comfort or happiness has never appealed to me; a system of ethics built on this basis would be sufficient only for a herd of cattle.” — Albert Einstein
As a leader, you are the primary ethics teacher in your organization. What you do, what you omit sends signals to the observing. And they will remember what you do, long after they forget what you said.
Frequently, you must choose right over right, or what is both right and good for your organization. Ethical dilemmas are defining moments for your leadership. By exposing how you make ethical decisions, you reveal the content of your own character and renew what values are to be embraced by your organization.
Make time for ethical reflection and consultation.
