Ethics in the Workplace: Tools and Tactics for Organizational Transformation 2e equips students to act as change agents who encourage ethical transformation in corporations, small businesses, government, social service agencies, religious groups, the military and other organizations. The text blends theory and practice as it introduces readers to important ethics theories, concepts and skills (tools) drawn from a variety of academic disciplines and outlines implementation strategies (tactics). Self-assessments, case studies and chapter end exercises foster skill development, discussion and analysis. The book, written in a reader-friendly style, is organized around levels or layers of organizational behavior. Part I, Laying the Ethical foundation, provides the groundwork for transformation by introducing moral theories frequently used in ethical problem solving. Part II, Transforming Individual Ethics, examines individual motivations and decisions. Part III, Transforming Interpersonal Ethics, looks at the moral issues raised by connections between organizational members. Part IV, Transforming Group and Leadership Ethics, focuses on the ethical dilemmas of groups, teams, and those in leadership roles. Part V, Transforming the Ethics of Organizational Systems, provides strategies for combating destructive behaviors, creating ethical cultures, and promoting social responsibility and global citizenship.
