Today more than ever many of us are questioning the role that ethics plays in organizational management. When companies like ENRON and WorldComm are exposed it makes us ponder the question, how is it that corporate leaders are able to develop a culture that encourages ethical misconduct like that? What does it take to convince staff members to engage in behavior that results in poor judgement: Greed? Power? An overblown ego?
The topic of corporate ethics is an important issue that leaders continue to face in the workplace. This includes everything from stealing from the company, cheating or short-changing clients, sexual misconduct, and corporate operations that pollute the environment. In short, corporate leaders are faced with many issues because many lack a code of ethics by which to adhere to. As this has become a significant topic in the business world and because of my own personal experiences with ethical misconduct in a corporate arena, I conducted extensive research work on this important issue and published my findings in an article that is now available on amazon.com at the link below, for those interested. In this article, I will explain why it is important to develop a strong ethical culture in both our personal lives as well as in the work place and take a closer look at how issues of self-esteem and self-efficacy can play a role in shaping an individual’s perceptions of right and wrong behavior.
I also examine how narcissistic personality and character disorders that can influence ethical behavior citing examples from my own experiences as an entrepreneur in the entertainment industry and corporate insider as an alumnus of Capitol EMI Records to help illustrate how ethics can help steer individuals and their companies to the path of success or epic failure.
In the meantime, be on the lookout for another new article coming soon on the current topic I am researching:
Until then … stay organized!
