Customer Reviews For "Ethics 101"Write Your Own Review
In an age and time when trust in leaders has eroded, Maxwell has written a helpful book to challenge, help and guide leaders to live and lead ethically. After describing why people make unethical choices (they do what's most convenient, they do what they must to win, and they rationalize their choices with relativism), Maxwell argues that ethics matters and will ultimately pay off. He advocates the Golden Rule ("Whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them") as the fundamental ethical principle to live and work by. Following the Golden Rule, we will value, appreciate, trust, respect, understand and not take advantage of people. Maxwell challenges the reader to adopt the Golden Rule as the "Integrity Guideline" for one's life. After cautioning how pressure, pleasure, power, pride and misplaced priorities can cause us to compromise our ethics, Maxwell offers guidelines to help us live ethically as we pursue golden opportunities: take responsibility for your actions; develop personal discipline; know your weaknesses; align your priorities with values; admit wrongdoing quickly and ask forgiveness; take care with finances; put family ahead of work; and place high value on people. This little primer on ethics is a must-read not only for every business leader but also for everyone.
