#Leadership #Tip of the Day – #Ethical Leadership

Moral compass
Show consistent ethics with today’s leadership development tip!
Ethical leaders practice what they preach. They don’t ask their direct reports to do something they wouldn’t do themselves. They demonstrate consistent ethics and values through consistent actions and behaviors. To evaluate your consistency, write down your ethics statements and values. Then, think about past actions and decisions to determine whether they align or mis-align with your stated values.

bizethicsBusiness Ethics: How to Design and Manage Ethical Organizations – Denis Collins

From the Book: Collin’s Business Ethics: An Organization Systems Approach to Designing Ethical Organizations provides theoretical and practical information to help create organizations of high integrity and superior performance. The text offers ways to design organizations that reinforce ethical behavior and reduce risks. It’s organized based on an “Optimal Ethics Systems Model” which includes ethical job candidates, decision making, training, officers and hotlines, leadership, work goals and performance appraisals, environmental management, and community outreach.

Early chapters present types of ethical issues organizations face, history of government regulation, the importance and extent of codes of ethics and conduct, an ethical decision-making framework, and the importance and extent of managing the natural environment and being a good corporate citizen – as well as new ideas and models.  In addition, Collins provides a much broader array of best practices in business ethics to immediately implement many of the management techniques.
