By Linda Fisher Thornton Ethics and detachment don't mix well. In fact, combining high ethical expectations with an aloof stance can lead to trouble.
By Linda Fisher Thornton Last week I wrote about how to prepare for leadership future by staying centered in ethical values. Grounding our work in values is critically important but it's not enough. There's much more to being ready for the future of leadership than just staying aligned with positive values. This week I'm sharing a graphic about 5 other variables that need to be in place to build a (positive) ethical culture.
In spite of all the bad news you see in the media about ethics, we don't build ethical cultures by focusing on the negative. Let's face it - thinking about fraud, embezzlement and conflict of interest won't make us better leaders. But that's what many of us are focusing on in our organizations.
