In the socially responsible, conscience-focused marketplaces of today, the demand for more ethical business processes and actions is increasing. Enron, Worldcom and - most recently - individual rogue financial traders have all helped to shake the public's faith in business. Studies have shown that 60 percent of people don't trust business leaders to tell the truth, yet many companies don't even have a code of ethics - and if they do there is no guarantee it will be followed. "The Ethical Executive" provides guidelines for anyone in business who wants to do the right thing. It looks at the root causes of unethical behaviour and describes psychological traps that the unwitting executive can fall prey to. Using case studies from international business such as Johnson & Johnson and Worldcom, it describes how corporate culture can encourage unethical behaviour through slavish obedience to authority, the sidestepping of responsibility, all-encompassing self interest, the blame culture and a self-serving bias. "The Ethical Executive" will help you to become aware of these traps - so you can be more cautious, vigilant and then hopefully avoid them.
