Ask the Ethics Question

Posted by: Rod Kurtz on December 26, 2008

Strong ethical standards are a key ingredient of great leadership. Yet too often the question of whether or not we are doing the right thing goes unasked, particularly during the daily tumult of competition, adaptation, and negotiation. Make it a practice to ask yourself and your people the oft-forgotten question: Is this the right thing to do? The answer is what you know in your gut to be true. Standing by your ethics may mean taking an unpopular position. Do so, and you can inspire your people and others you serve to be part of something great.
