Kyle Ryan's curator insight, October 28, 2013 1:31 PM

Making an ethical decision in the business world is a tough thing to come by. Companies are more worried about their success rather than the happiness of their customers. Business ethics needs to be practiced every day by every employee in order to have a successful and trustworthy business model.

Ashleigh Dawley's curator insight, October 29, 2013 1:51 PM

I found it intersting how blurry the lines in ethics are. The article talks about  ethics and the idea that hiring only ethical people  makes your business better or that it is easy to be ethical. I know that most times when I come into contact with ethical decision sometimes its easy and sometimes its hard.

Corruption in Business, and the Importance of Ethics

Corruption in Business, and the Importance of Ethics | Business | Scoop.it

During the early days of my career, I used to think that corruption was a third-world ill. Then I started my own company and saw the world from the vantage point of a CEO. I realized that corruption is everywhere, that ethics is a slippery slope, and that the decisions you make at every juncture define who you are.

Here are examples of the many lessons I learned.

I once needed to negotiate a distribution deal with a company that controlled market access to my products.

Excerpt from article:


Unless you’re a solo freelancer, chances are you will eventually be thrust into a leadership position. As creatives, we must embrace this challenge and not shy away form it, as a fear of being a leader can subconsciously hold us back from advancing in our career. 

Nancy J. Herr's curator insight, September 9, 2013 12:16 PM

This article gives great advice and it's not too late in the school year-- or your career-- to take it!
