Overview

Have you ever found yourself with only two horrific choices: Resign your job, or resign yourself to "living a lie" at work as a person with conflicted ethical standards? Ethical dilemmas come on a daily basis, and they cause too much stress.

The best companies to work for–and the companies that are the most profitable–have a distinct ethical culture. These companies have a strategic competitive advantage. But this does not come easily. As an employee today, you cannot pretend your decisions about right and wrong do not matter. You can no longer say, "I did it to keep my job." We are all the new "corporate conscience keepers."

Say good-bye to the stress of an unethical workplace! Here is your guidebook to building an Ethical Office, where you manage your work life so that it is aligned with your authentic morals and ethics. Packed with real-world examples and advice from experienced peers, you will learn how to:

  • Extinguish harassment, gossip, and lies
  • Balance loyalty to your boss versus company loyalty
  • Steer your career with Nan's Ethical Priority Compass
  • Be smart about handling cupid's arrows in the workplace
  • Think before you blow the whistle
  • Deal with "ethically challenged" vendors
  • Participate in events without hangovers or regrets
  • Build a culture of confidentiality
  • Keep your boss (and others) ethical with Nan's 12-Step Program
  • Recover from a mistake that leaves you embarrassed and ashamed

In You've Got to Be Kidding!, ethics expert Nan DeMars presents her easy, step-by-step techniques for dealing with ethical dilemmas. This handbook picks up where the law leaves off and offers detailed guidance on virtually every workplace ethics issue. Both you and your company are tested by ethical dilemmas, and your choices frame who you are and what you stand for. You've Got to Be Kidding! prepares you for these tests and helps you build a more ethical office that reinforces your natural desire to do the right thing.
