Advances in technology and innovative methods of operation continue to shape today’s business world. Because of this the concept, the academic and business community are rethinking their tactics and adapting a mindset that includes strategies for lifelong learning. In other words, many leading executives suggest that to achieve the best outcomes in a career today, higher levels of education, like formal academic training including bachelor’s and master’s degrees, as well as the participation in managerial training programs, are a significant part of that equation. In addition, Baack (2012) postulates that personal efforts to improve skills through channels like conferences, seminars, research, mentorships with experts, as well as a closer study of professional literature, are also quite common practices in today’s business arena. These are some of the strategies top performers in management utilize for the preparation and training of staff members to help them build and support a solid ethical foundation.
In his book Life Was Never Meant To Be A Struggle, Stuart Wilde (1987) revealed that when you accept full responsibility for your life you can also accept the concept that you are playing an active role in helping to shape your destiny (Wilde, 1987). Leaders who embrace this concept and want to establish and maintain a certain code of ethics in their organization, know that by working in partnership with staff members as a strategy, they can not only plan and shape their outcomes, they can also improve motivational and ethical behavior in the work place. My research work, some of which is compiled in my eBook, Ethics In The Real World (2013) revealed different strategies and examples of how executives achieve successful organizational outcomes in the workplace from the development of systems and programs that help provide higher levels of education for staff members. This is an important component for leaders looking to establish and build a solid ethical foundation (Berry, 2013).
In conclusion, strategists can achieve higher results by enlisting the aid of management training programs. These programs are established to train staff members by providing them with higher levels of education in leadership skills and critical thinking. In fact, many who attend the more prestigious programs, like that of Rapport Leadership International, as I have, testify they are forever changed and return from these events equipped with a fresh perspective. In fact, many are so charged, they return eager to implement new goals with a driven enthusiasm in an effort to employ their newly enhanced skills. In short, top leaders concur that training programs are proven methods that help them establish and build a more solid foundation that encourages a more rewarding and ethical culture at their place of employment.
On Friday, we will look into what it takes to find the right fit with another person, organization, or group. Until then … keep working on your organizational skills.
