Gabriel Flynn and Patricia H. Werhane This book points to a necessary relationship between ethics and business; the success of such an alliance depends directly on sound business leadership. Without the sort of leadership that upholds the dignity and rights of employees and clients, as well as the interests of shareholders, even the most meticulously prepared ethics statements are destined to founder, as evidenced at Enron and elsewhere. Over the past 30 years or so, since business ethics became established as a discipline in its own right, much progress has been made in the ethical conduct of business at all levels. In short, business people, like politicians, doctors and church leaders, have come to realize that it is not possible to avoid involvement in ethics, for much of what business people do and cannot do may be subject to ethical evaluation. While the history of business ethics as currently practised may be traced to the medieval and ancient periods; our principal concern is with developments in the ?eld over recent decades. A consideration of how the topic has been treated by the Harvard Business Review, the business world’sleadingprofessionaljournal,provideshelpful insights into past progress and present challenges. In 1929, just as business ethics was beginning to evolve, Wallace B.

LEADERSHIP: Where Business Ethics Begin. This Instructor's Edition has been written for individuals who find themselves in a position to help students step back and look at where they are going - or where they already are - as business participants, including those who are directly or indirectly involved in business. People whose participation is indirect are individuals who have a family member or friend involved/consumed with their position. This book can help in understanding what those business participants might be experiencing on physical, mental, emotional, and psychological levels. Chapter One: "This book is about awareness* and the role it plays in significantly increasing our quality of life and our ability to create value for ourselves and others." Chapter Two: "Focusing on what is happening around you and then detaching from the result was one of the main ideas presented in chapter 1." Chapter Three: "Out of expanding awareness comes what I have dubbed 180-degree vision*." Chapter Four: "The ability to manage the Four Ss by integrating a company's STRATEGY with evolving knowledge and information within the SCIENCE, SERVICE, and SPIRITUAL arenas requires an expanded awareness of personal service." Chapter Five: "As stated in prior chapters, our vision or understanding of our role as a leader is impacted almost completely by our awareness and understanding of life and the human condition." Chapter Six: "Leaders that begin to see with 180-degree vision as a result of increasing awareness will realize a powerful change in experience and success. They will intuitively focus on longer term issues..." Chapter Seven: "I first heard of the idea of 'frame of reference' when I attended a program presented by Stephen R. Covey, author of the book Seven Activities of Highly Successful People." Chapter Eight: "Encourage students to read this chapter first before proceeding to the rest of the book. The summary may help underscore the importance of creating a more ethical environment within any job they may find themselves, either now or in the future." The Instructor's Edition also contains a case study of the financial services/banking industry to stimulate discussion and discernment.

This book aims to provide insight into the fields of business and leadership by examining the role of ethics in these areas. The papers in this book derive from the 2014 Annual Griffiths School of Management International Conference, organized by Emanuel University of Oradea, Romania, where academics and practitioners interacted and discussed current insights and research in the different dimensions of business ethics and leadership. This resulting book offers empirical and theological research on ethics, business and leadership from a transdisciplinary and knowledge- based context. Since the financial crisis in 2008, the debate on business ethics and leadership has dominated the public sphere at all levels of interest, from grassroots to the elites in educational institutions, governments, businesses and NGOs. Naturally, constructive and transdisciplinary discussions need to take place, with due consideration for the specific context of each situation, so that propositions upon which to build the future can be formulated. These discussions unfold in an ever more intricate world of business, powered by ever more pervasive and intelligent technology and scientific development, all brought together by globalization. In this world, organizations are faced with new and more complex ethical issues in their pursuit to serve clients, gain profits, motivate employees, collaborate with partners and act responsibly towards society and the environment. A wise approach to changing the future is to understand the mistakes of the past, because one must always learn how to overcome past mistakes in order to develop a better future. But a necessary approach to building a better future is looking at the world through a transdisciplinary mindset. This allows us to see the world as a complex whole; it fosters creative interaction between fields of knowledge; it opens doors for knowledge and innovation flows across disciplines; and it allows the tackling of complex problems and situations. Given the current context of our world, this is an approach that we ought to pursue. Featuring contributions from academics, researchers, scholars and practitioners from across the globe, this book will be of great interest for students and practitioners in the fields of business, leadership and ethics.

BOOK DESCRIPTION Building and Surviving a Successful Career: How we go about building on our careers has much to do with our frame of reference and awareness of the root cause of how we have become participants within business and the value it creates. Whether it is from a job or mercenary perspective (due to our need to make a living and provide for those around us) or as that of advocates who approach their positions with the intensity of avocations, much of what happens has to do about our ideas or perceptions of what our roles should or can be over the lifetime of our career. Therefore, what we end up with as a result of this business activity is up to us. For leaders and participants, the reality is that we attract and maintain others of like ideas and perspectives around us. It is in this attracting process that our quality of life can be impacted significantly along very positive avenues when we understand the roles we play.
