I noticed that Jesse Lyn Stoner’s Blog Post Celebrating the 2nd Anniversary of My Blog included her favorite quotes from her blog. Her post appeared in the Mini-Carnival of HR at CostofWork.com along with my 150th Blog Post Learning Out Loud .
This week, I thought I’d share 10 of my favorite quotes from the Leading in Context Blog. Clicking on each quote takes you to the full post that includes the quote.
- “Ethical” isn’t just a kind of decision-making. It is the way we need to think about all of our choices, today and every day.
- “Dealing with work complexity has become a major leadership development issue. And it is a challenge that has ethical implications.”
- “How we handle the grey areas in how people treat each other paints a border that becomes the outline of our company’s ethics.”
- “When we acknowledge complexity, we help leaders resolve the natural tension between our leadership and performance expectations and our ethical expectations.”
- Civility is a “load-bearing beam” in the foundation of ethical leadership. Ethical companies accept nothing less.
- “In this age of ‘infotainment’ and information overload, we have to know ourselves, know our responsibility to others, and choose to act beyond self-interest and short-term gain.”
- “If I think that people will do a good job if I support them, and that a little chaos is just part of the creative process, then I will likely tolerate higher levels of chaos and give employees room to use their own creativity and make mistakes.”
- “When we are not open to learning, we can easily misinterpret another perspective that does not match our own as a threat.”
- “The most important thing is to ask employees about which ethical issues they would like to be talking about.”
