OBSERVATION: There is no such thing as business ethics; there’s just ethics.

There are no exemptions from basic rules of honesty, respect, caring, and fairness just because money or careers are involved. Our private lives, our relationships, and the way we make a living are governed by the same moral principles. Don’t get caught up in rationalizations and pressures. In every setting we have the opportunity and obligation to be a good person. The good news is good ethics is good business. See today’s commentary about Firms of Endearment at whatwillmatter.com.

  1. A basic truth that, sadly, needs continual “in broad daylight” reinforcement for everyone. Those who apply different sets of “ethics” to different sectors of their or others lives (“situational ethics”) at the core do not have a moral foundation worthy of claiming as one.
