The exercise to fill in the blank, “Ethics can ________”, would no doubt give rise to numerous different responses. Another perspective based on all that workplace ethics can realise and deliver is to recognise that “Ethics can” is the full sentence. Ethics can build trust; it can create pleasant, productive workplaces that are characterised by high levels of fairness, respect, accountability and responsibility; it can foster sound relationships with internal and external stakeholders; it can position the organisation as an employee of choice, attracting and retaining the best talent, it can boost the organisations reputation and branch equity; it can create a high degree of customer and investor confidence; and it can and should be a key differentiator that accords ethical organisations a unique source of competitive advantage. In short, ethics can make all the difference – which is a difference that is sorely needed. The book includes various practical exercises, checklists and guidelines, suggested workplace discussions, case studies and commentaries, and further reading. The title of this book, “Ethics Can”, lives up to its promise. In addition to dealing with more recent issues such as cybercrime, social media and supply chain, the content is an illustration of how ethics permeates every aspect of the workplace. The book is packed with practical examples, and each chapter contains useful questions for workplace discussions and recommended reading. That the author eats, sleeps and breathes ethics shines through. If you are uncertain about how to take ethics from concept to implementation, read this book. And keep it for regular future reference. —Ansie Ramalho, Chief Executive Officer, The Institute of Directors, Southern Africa Cynthia Schoeman is at the forefront of promoting business ethics in South Africa. Drawing on her extensive knowledge and experience, she has written an exceptional book. It offers a clear and systematic treatment of business ethics, and is laced with valuable insights and practical suggestions. —Rabbi Gideon Pogrund (MA (Cantab)), Business Ethics Consultant

We often make small ethical compromises for "good" reasons: We lie to a customer because our boss asked us to. We exaggerate our accomplishments on our résumé to get an interview. Temptation blindsides us. And we make snap decisions we regret. Minor ethical lapses can seem harmless, but they instill in us a hard-to-break habit of distorted thinking. Rationalizations drown out our inner voice, and we make up the rules as we go. We lose control of our decisions, fall victim to the temptations and pressures of our situations, taint our characters, and sour business and personal relationships. In Ethics for the Real World, Ronald Howard and Clinton Korver explain how to master the art of ethical decision making by: Identifying potential compromises in your own life Applying distinctions to clarify your ethical thinking Committing in advance to ethical principles Generating creative alternatives to resolve dilemmas Packed with real-life examples, this book gives you practical advice to respond skillfully to life's inevitable ethical challenges. Not only can you make right decisions, you can acquire new habits that will realize the best in yourself and transform your relationships.
