How to Become Truly Social

Coaching Tip

Winning in this environment requires more than new technology ; here are ten ways to become truly social in a world that is not just connected, but interconnected and interdependent: 1) Do away with one-way conversations.

Don’t Ever Use Ethics To Argue For a Business Decision

The Idolbuster

In 1994 Massachusetts had a statewide referendum that would have required companies to reduce the amount of product packaging. One side said that excess packaging is bad for the environment and costly to the public. The measure was defeated 65% to 35%. Fast forward to today – many companies cannot reduce their packaging quickly enough. Corporations are in business to make money, and it is very hard to argue that a company should make less money for any reason.

What You Can Do to Improve Ethics at Your Company

Harvard Business Review

It’s hard for good, ethical people to imagine how these meltdowns could possibly happen. But what about the ordinary engineers, managers, and employees who designed cars to cheat automotive pollution controls or set up bank accounts without customers’ permission? But, according to a study by one of us (Christopher) of C-suite executives from India, Colombia, Saudi Arabia, the U.S., many of us face an endless stream of ethical dilemmas at work.

Students Teach Business Ethics

Harvard Business Review

In the fall, I wrote a series of posts on the moral concerns raised by the financial crisis and how a business ethics course might address them. MBAs, I said, should not be expected to memorize a subjective list of professional Do's-and-Don'ts. Rather, they should be taught "how to engage, with intelligence and integrity, a real ethics debate about the role of business and the business professional in a free society.".

Learning How to Make Market Segmentation Work Again

Harvard Business Review

For decades, marketers have segmented their target customers to get a read on who will buy a product or service. Back when consumer choices were limited by which products got stocked on the local shelves, those characteristics did a pretty good job at drawing a straight line connecting where you live with, say, where you buy milk, how often and at what price. Marketers no longer need to be so indirect about figuring out what a customer will do or like.

The Best Ways to Discuss Ethics

Harvard Business Review

How we communicate about values and good conduct is a challenging task in the best of circumstances. In addition to the big scandals, there's a long and easily recited list of instances of workplace misconduct: employees violate company rules, workers sabotage their peers, employees steal from their own employers, and executives overstate performance to shareholders. Companies can take a wide variety of approaches to how to discuss ethics.
