Executive Ethics: Ethical Dilemmas and Challenges for the C-suite (Google eBook)
Scott Quatro, Ronald R. Sims
Scott Quatro and Ronald Sims have put together an impressive group of experts that delve into theessential elements of C-suite leadership; especially, ethics-driven leadership. The book reminds usthat the "bottom line" is more complicated now. Profits are only part of the equation. The post Sarbanes-Oxley era requires more than ethics-related compliance. It calls for the creation of an ethics-driven ethos as well. This book begins the dialogue toward such an ethos. This timely volumeis unified in its collective voice, but uniquely diverse in its independent voices, as it draws on thewisdom and experiences of twenty-nine different contributors from both industry and the academy.This book will also help you understand how organizations can maximize the fun, effectiveness, and experienced meaningfulness of thepeople who work there. The fundamentals are simple and easy to understand. Unfortunately, few C-suite leaders can bring themselvesto lead consistently following these fundamentals. An ethical organizational leader must continuously remind the organization why theorganization exists, and why what it does is important. People will not work with energy, engagement, and consistency without a purposethey intensely believe is worthwhile. Leaders must continually find ways to articulate the importance of individual peoples' effortstoward that end.
