The Power of Ethical Management


Product Description
Product Details


Addressing moral dilemmas in a time of influence peddling, insider trading and city-hall scandals, Blanchard (The One Minute Manager) and Peale (The Power of Positive Thinking) offer guidance in the form of a parable: a sales manager being pressed for results interviews a hot job candidate who promises that, if hired, he will disclose trade secrets of his former employer, a competitor. The sales manager agonizes over the ethics of the situation and seeks counsel with friends as well as a consultant who gradually puts things right with the help of an ``ethics check'' and ``five principles of ethical power.'' The manager goes on to discover how company honesty and good feeling can be developed, with ensuing business success and profitability. The authors have produced a quick, inspirational read, with encouragement for those whose principles are at risk in business. (February)

Peale and Blanchard encourage managers to confront ethical dilemmas in this short, very readable book. Much as Blanchard did in The One Minute Manager , they use the parable format, focusing initially on a hiring issue for a manager in a high-tech company in which many common ethical problems emerge. The authors present a three-question check list for dealing with ethical issues in organizations and encourage top management to empower managers to think and act ethically by implementing a simple system of five principles of ethical power. Recommended for general collections. Jane M. Kathman, Coll. of St. Benedict, St. Joseph, Minn.
