The strategic advantage that ethics give. Everyone publicly agrees that ethics are important in business and at home, however this doesn’t explain why it seems that it is hard for some people to take an ethical stand when faced with pressure.
In this show, guest Yonason Goldson shares with Judith Germain how utilising your ethics takes courage and that having a company that allows its employees to operate from an ethical stand point is a strategic advantage. There is a fallacy to believe that we can’t afford to be ethical.
The basic definition of ethics vs. morality Why ethics scares people The fallacy of thinking we can’t afford to be ethical Why constructive disagreement is essential to ethical thinking Ethics as a mindset vs. compliance laws
Maverick Leaders see everyone as peers which means that when they are communicating they seek first to understand rather than being understood. Once they understand, they will seek to ensure that they are understood. For Jeannie Moravits Smith that means being an engaged listener.
In this radio show Jeannie really explains what this is, how you can ensure it happens and the benefit for your employees.
