ETHICS 101

How does a person judge what is

ethical? Sometimes it’s clear. You know Enron’s leaders were in the wrong.

But is it always easy to see where the line is in your own life? What’s the standard? And will it apply in all situations?



There’s no such thing. There’s only ethics."

John

John C. Maxwell thinks

it can. When the New York Times

best-selling author, successful businessman, and former pastor was asked about

his thoughts on business ethics, his response was, “There’s no such thing. There’s only ethics.” Maxwell asserts that there’s one ethical

standard for all behavior. And you might

be surprised by what it’s based on. Did

you know that a variation of the Golden Rule exists in every major religion?



In his book, Ethics

101, Maxwell shows how people can live with integrity by using the Golden Rule

as their standard—regardless of religion, culture, or circumstances. Along the way, he delves into the desires of

the human heart, reveals the five most common causes that get people off track

ethically, and teaches how to develop the "Midas touch" when it comes

to integrity.
