We ve seen some high profile ethical failures in
the press in recent years. The problems and devas-
tation caused by accounting fraud at the investment
company run by Bernard Madoff will not soon be
forgotten, nor will the earlier frauds at Enron and
Worldcom. People have also raised ethical questions
over the welfare of some organisations staff and
This highlights the extent to which it can be difficult
for leaders to determine what s right and wrong.
Some make the wrong choices -- and end up in the
courts, or in the news.
What we rarely see, however, are stories about the
numerous companies that are managed by ethical
leaders. While standards seem to keep falling in some
corporations, other leaders "raise the bar" and inspire
their teams to do the same. These leaders do the
right thing, at the right time, for the right reasons.
They put their ethics before the bottom line -- and
as a result, they have dedicated teams that would do
almost anything for them.
well? We ll show you how to define your own ethical
standards -- and start putting those standards into
Define Your Organisation's Values
To lead your team with character and integrity,
you must set an example. You re the leader, remem-
ber? Your team looks to you. To begin, you must
know your own values as well as your organisation s
For example, the global technology giant 3M is
well known for its company values. Why? Because
the entire team -- from top executives all the way
down to the mailroom -- live and breathe the principles
of honesty and integrity every day. 3M communicates
clearly that it wants its staff to do things like keep
promises, have personal accountability, and respect
others in the workforce. Every leader in the company
knows this, so they work by these rules. And as a
result, everyone else follows.
Hopefully, your company has clear rules about
how it wants team members to act. As a leader, it s
up to you to know these rules and codes of conduct;
and to make sure you enforce them.
Your personal values are also important. If the
company s written rules don t say that you must be
fair to everyone, but this value is important to you
-- then, of course, you re going to do it.
Good leaders follow their personal values as well
as organisational values.
