The Ethics Challenge – Facing the Herd



America is a nation of laws. Ironically, we face a hurdle in the rules-based nature of our society.  We need a strong ethical grounding. A sense of mission and a culture of trust are important, but not enough. Ethics must complement the rules. This starts on the inside.  You don’t get a culture of ethics without personal transformation. When it comes to living ethically, outer compliance and inner character are a  winning combination. Tom Peters, Uber-Guru of management commented on Mick’s book and said…… “Read the Ethics Challenge. Please act on it. Your professional and family life alike literally depend on it.”
