Turn on any news channel. Open any newspaper. It’s easy to come to the conclusion that the business world is being led by individuals who have lost their moral compass. Remember Enron? How about Bernie Madoff? For every organization in moral bankruptcy, there are hundreds of thousands of leaders armed with good moral character, ready to restore dignity to the business world. According to the Josephson Institute, a nonprofit organization dedicated to inspiring a more ethical society, business ethics can be summed up in 12 principles:
- Respect for others
- Law abiding
- Commitment to excellence
- Reputation and Morale
