Professional Business Ethics – Skyrocket Your Career Without Sacrificing Your Integrity
As a moral and upright person, you might worry about the temptations of cutting corners, smudging a few details, or going behind a few backs to make it in today’s cutthroat business world. But what if you could gain tremendous business success, without sacrificing ethics, brown-nosing the boss, or sacrificing the most important things – family, friends and personal life?
Yet in today's world, you must resolve ethical dilemmas in the workplace every single day. Do you report the coworker who used racially charged language just out of earshot of an African American employee? Should you refuse to work long overtime hours without additional pay - choosing between impressing your boss or being with your family? And what about useless meetings, using cell phones and texting on the job, or even viewing pornography from work computers?
Your Integrity is Important
Your own personal integrity is as important as your education or your skills in how well you progress through your career. You implicitly teach others how to act by example - your team will follow your lead and act as you act. By remaining professional at all times on the job, your team will get the message about to act as well. This applies regardless of your position; you can manage up as well as down the organization board. In other words, you train your boss, to a certain extent, by your own actions.
For example, there is some value to occasionally putting in extra hours without compensation. but by always longer, you allow your managers to create schedules and projects that depend upon that extra effort. Before long, you'll find these working conditions become normal and expected, and trying to "cut back" to normal will be looked upon with disfavor. You might even find "he's not a team player" or something similar in your review because of your attempts to have a good work/life balance.
How do you prevent this from happening? You'll learn the answers to this and other questions in this book.
