If Organizational Ethics is a Kingdom-of-Ends. Why are we treating employees as means?

Mike Cardus

This can only come about through shared respect and reciprocal helping relationships of the team-members and management. My manager just used me to accomplish his goals. Plus we want to believe what we are doing is just, so as Managers we increase our own confirmation bias and notice only the actions and behaviors that reinforce our beliefs, that in turn work to reinforce our actions. What can you do, today to treat people in a more fair and ethical manner?

Managing the “Great Expectations” of the Next Sales Generation

Women on Business

I teach and advise Gen Yers — also known as Millennials (born after 1980) — at the university level in sales and business ethics. How do companies motivate and manage a generation of workers who grew up receiving awards and prizes for just showing up? That’s what one manager recently shared with me about how much time she spends getting new Gen Y team members on board. Some Millennials lack time management skills because parents managed their calendars.

Imperfect Leadership

Coaching Tip

Successful management is the result of understanding and accepting your own humanity. In a 2012 study of 361 top-level executives from 53 countries, by the Center of Creative Leadership, 19% of respondents stated that leaders are born to lead, while 52% believed that leaders are created; 29% said that both factors are equally important. The problem is that there are not enough of them to fill all the management positions in all of our organizations.

How Artificial Intelligence Will Redefine Management

The Leper in the Room: Workplace Violence

Women on Business

We speak about managing teams and dealing with problem performers, but we very rarely speak about what happens when those situations go horribly wrong. Aggressive employees are aggressive simply because they can be and from a management perspective we understand that the reasons behind aggression can be as different as the staff. Provide professional development that deals with team building and diversity training. Manage workplace settings.

How Managers Can Avoid Playing Favorites

Harvard Business

But when managers favor one employee over another, morale and productivity suffer. What Great Managers Do. Exceptional managers find and capitalize on their employees' unique strengths. “You’re not giving others the opportunity to grow and develop strength and breadth.” Playing favorites also dents your own professional development. But studies show that being exposed to different perspectives and ideas spurs creativity.

Responsive Leadership: Needed Now More Than Ever

Leading Blog

In a recent LeadershipNow blog, Mark Sanborn wrote about six warning signs of why leaders fail: a shift in focus; poor communication; risk aversion; ethics slip; poor self-management; and lost love. Over my many decades in leadership roles, reflecting on my own development as a leader, talking with colleagues, and reading and studying leadership, I have come to believe that there are four essential attributes that drive the responsive leader.

Leadership Hinges Upon What You Do – Not Who You Are

Lead Change Blog

It takes a lot of guts, initiative, and creativity to become a great leader. You do not have to invent something or develop a theory that can change the world to consider yourself a leader. This means that when you finally become a leader, reflect the footsteps of the leader who set an example in terms of good values, work ethic, decision-making, and management. There are hundreds of thousands of resources that tell people about what it takes to be a leader.

She was the model for executive assistants and office managers everywhere. Those vital employees in the business world might include the IT guy, the receptionist, the mailroom manager, the ethics adviser and the secretary to the Board of Directors. And then there were those mentors behind the scene who were responsible for lots of creativity. Think as a manager, not as a worker. Learn and do the things it will take to assume management responsibility.

Freedom to Fail


Indeed, if the apocryphal story of Edison remarking, “I discovered 10,000 ways not to make a light bulb” is accurate, one suspects that creative leaders already knew this. It appears one of the most potent ways leaders can develop creativity in followers is by giving them freedom to fail. The “little bets” are designed to push the creativity and innovation further (Sims, 2011). I see this idea over and over again in my study of creativity in organizations.

Aim Higher: Servant Leaders are Humble

Skip Prichard

In fact, when leaders aren’t humble – when they’re arrogant or proud – they shut down the traits that make for the strongest teams: creativity, good worth ethic, entrepreneurship, selflessness. A manager taking my emotional state into account during a time of crisis. And that “good pride” made me more willing to go the extra mile, be more creative, take measured risks and be more authentic at work. Leadership and Humility.
