Editorial Reviews

Charles B. Reed, Chancellor, CSU system
The Ethics Challenge will change the way you think about your role as a leader and inspire you to follow your inner “ethical” voice. Its examples will help leaders strengthen their core ethical behavior and develop both personally and professionally.
Ken Blanchard
Breaches of ethics seem to be so commonplace in the news today that it would be easy to think of ethical behavior as a thing of the past. But when you read The Ethics Challenge, you’ll see that ethics is alive and well in America. Bob Stone and Mick Ukleja have written an important book for today’s leaders.
Philip K. Howard,
The Ethics Challenge brings virtue to life with stories and parables that should be read by everyone. A moral compass is essential to a happy life and a healthy society.
Philip K. Howard, "The Death of Common Sense"
The Ethics Challenge brings virtue to life with stories and parables that should be read by everyone. A moral compass is essential to a happy life and a healthy society.
Robert Eckert, CEO Mattel
Powerful, personal, and most important, relevant for today's students of business and society. Stone and Ukleja clearly articulate what's gone wrong and what we need to do, collectively and individually, to get back on the right ethics track.
Tom Peters
Talk about timely! Organizations of all sorts, for profit or not, exist for but one reason—to be of service. True service to oneself and one’s constituencies must be built on a basis of trust, truth, and transparency. Bob Stone and Mick Ukleja make this point brilliantly. Please read The Ethics Challenge. Please act on it. Your professional and family life alike literally depend on it. Bravo!

]
Bob Stone served for twelve years as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Installations, where he radically decentralized authority, cut regulations, made excellence the new standard, and occasionally got into hot water. He then spent six years at the White House leading the effort to reinvent government. His latest book, Confessions of a Civil Servant: Lessons in Changing America’s Government and Military, has been praised by senior aides to Presidents G.H.W. Bush and Clinton, chiefs of the army, air force, and navy, and by the chairmen of Motorola, Harley Davidson, and TRW. Tom Peters wrote the Foreword, in which he calls the book “maybe the best text ever on large-scale organizational change. Anywhere.”
He is an internationally known author and speaker on ethical leadership, on leading change, and on reinventing government. He serves as a member of the guest faculty and on the Governing Council of the Ukleja Center for Ethical Leadership at California State University, Long Beach, and teaches business ethics at the University of Redlands. He holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in chemical engineering from MIT.


Mick Ukleja is president of Leadershiptraq, a leadership-consulting firm. He helped found the Ukleja Center For Ethical Leadership at California State University, Long Beach, the second largest university in the state. His recent book, Who Are You And What Do You Want? Four Questions That Will Change Your Life, has been praised by legendary coach John Wooden and many prominent leaders and CEOs. Ken Blanchard, author of The One Minute Manager, writes in the Foreword, “This book is powerful. If you can answer the questions in a thoughtful way, you’ll come out a better person, because you’ll know who you are, what you’re doing, and what’s going to guide your journey.”
He works with entrepreneurs and CEOs, and chairs the Board of Trustees of the Astronauts Memorial Foundation at the Kennedy Space Center. He is a principal in the Bonita Bay Group, one of the largest developers of master-planned communities in Southwest Florida. He holds a B.A. in philosophy, a master’s in Semitic languages, and a Ph.D. in theology.
