From the Publisher:
The topic of moral courage is typically missing from business ethics instruction and management training. But moral courage is what is needed when workplace pressures threaten to compromise values and principles.
Moral Courage in Organizations: Doing the Right Thing at Work underscores the ethical pitfalls that one can expect to encounter at work and enhances one’s ability to do the right thing, despite these organizational pitfalls. The book highlights the effects of organizational factors on ethical behavior; illustrates exemplary moral courage and lapses of moral courage; explores the skills and information that support those who act with moral courage; and considers how to change organization to promote moral courage, as well as how to exercise moral courage to change organizations.
This book is a potent tool to foster more ethical organizational behavior by giving readers guidelines for moral courage.
