Teaching Ethics, Business, and the Boardroom-with Alexander Lowry - EP 143
What does being ethical mean to you in your personal life or professionally? Do you see things happening in your job that you protest or just ignore all together? How do you confront something unethical in your job without the risk of losing it? Truth be told, there are things happening in businesses that would be described as unethical. When presented with that, can you just stand there or would you do something about it? Maybe something inside of you calls you to take action.
