We all have to take stock and measure conduct in our personal and business lives. That means being responsible and accountable every day. I have many heroes from yesterday and present that command serious attention in my life. One of my favorites is Saint Joan of Arc. She elaborated on this subject in a clear and thoughtful […]
There are many ways to build ethical cultures and they deserve to identified and discussed. Due to the sheer magnitude and scope of what constitutes an ethical culture and the processes/initiatives/training that need to be fully in play, I thought we could start outlining some important areas that are relevant for all of us. Consider the following: 1) Have […]
I have a simple theory that is tested and personally experienced: you cannot have business ethics without personal ethics in place.

Every whistle blowing program I have seen has cracks, fissures, and ethical crevices. When I started my business career thirty seven years ago, whistle blowing programs simply did not exist.

The collective rewards […]
It’s not hard to locate an ethical tsunami in the United States. Most have not made the news yet; but the amazing drama continues at Theranos. You may have read in the past several years about this California based company: one that rose to startup stardom after promising accurate blood test results with just a […]
Imagine if you were an applicant for an executive position in an organization. Would you be able to review a handbook for building ethical cultures? What if you were considering a board position. Would you be able to review a playbook for building ethical cultures? What if you are like the vast majority of workers […]
The pendulum in all organizations is beginning to swing to building cultures that are ethics driven and self-governing. It is fluid, long overdue, a response to growing pressures that are demanding accountability now and in the future.
