Poor managers cost companies a lot of money and are the main source of bad business ethics. They are scary because they are blind to their own weaknesses, and feel empowered for the wrong reasons.

We fib a little and then we lie. Its no big deal because there wasn’t any harm done. We wonder why we don’t have better environments for business ethics.

A suburban Rotary Club in Minneapolis invited me to speak on personal and Business Ethics. Check out these stats. 1) According to the Education Testing Service in a survey of 12,000 high school students, 74% admitted to cheating to get ahead. 2) 55% of these students didn’t see a problem with cheating as others were doing […]
When will our politicians finally act ethically and demonstrate good Business Ethics? How much contempt for the truth can they continue to exhibit and flaunt the voters of this country?
