The Bottom Line on Integrity: 12 Principles for Higher Returns
Long-time motivational speaker and corporate consultant Quinn McKay, has distilled his lifetime investigation of business integrity into a single volume. McKay offers business people twelve keys to both help them recognize situations where they must protect their integrity, and also solve the dilemma many of us encounter when our personal ethics and business ethics conflict. McKay's conversational style makes this a thorough, thought-provoking read.
With case studies, examples, and questions that examine common business practices, it's a perfect tool for generating discussion and is a must read office manual.
Some of these keys include:
Rise above the prattle of preachy platitudes that feed self deception
Be alert to incremental morality
Recognize pressure is a major determinant of honesty
Realize everyone lives by 2 different ethical standards
Allow that lying is sometimes the right thing to do
Acknowledge the conflict of living the golden rule in a competitive world
Learn the law of obligation
