October 17th is Global Ethics Day with Anagrams…

Aside

This following is a Blog written by me yesterday at LinkedIn Pulse:  https://t.co/BydZhCrpyl

 

The ethics of wizards are very much like the ethics of people in our real-life world of work.  There is a spectrum of admirable, acceptable and unconscionable conduct to be seen.  TOM MORRIS*

Last week I attended a Conference sponsored by Convercent. It was called CONVERGE 2018 – Ethics in Action. The primary attendees were Ethics Officers in a multitude of industries, who enjoy life just as we do. No matter what profession you have, continuing to learn and being agile are necessary requirements for positions people hold today. Since October 17th is Global Ethics Day, I would like to share a few anagrams with you as follows:

E.arnestly listening, it became clear

T.hat the speaker told the truth.

H.e said what for many of us was not in our future.

I.t was necessary to pivot in order to

C.hange our path.  Be guided by integrity and who you are

S.o the judgments of others won’t keep you from your Purpose. ©Jo Ann M.         Radja

 

E.arly is better than later, he was

T.old.  Reading the proposal, questions

H.ad entered his mind.  An

I.nvestigation was necessary to

C.arefully uncover what the truth was.

S.o grateful for the advice to read the proposal early. ©Jo Ann M. Radja

 

E.arly Friday evening she heard,

T.hat’s her – and she was called a b___h.

H.e continued in bad form a few minutes later.

I.t’s always surprising how often you need to

C.ontrol your reaction.

S.o the situation is diffused and not reactive.  ©Jo Ann M. Radja

Ethics to YOU Too!  as you enjoy this Wednesday at your chosen profession.

Here in Chicago, it is Ideas Week. During a presentation yesterday, at 600 South Michigan Avenue, the Leo Burnett Company sponsored an Event entitled, “Creativity: What Comes After the Spark.”   An artist from The Ink Factory created the following Poster© I hope you will enjoy it’s content:

Any new thing faces the force of inertia!  And that’s just a test! Use greater power and overcome it!  Tom Morris American Philosopher

 

It’s my 5 Year Anniversary on WordPress business account. Thank you all   for:  following this blog, liking a post and sharing your comments with me.  I hope you have enjoyed a number of takeaways.

 

Earlier today I wrote a piece for LinkedIn Publisher that explained that ethics is alive and well, the people who work in large corporations are just like you and me and want to do well, as well as lessons learned in this 21st Century.

                                    Here is that link  “IT REALLY HAPPENED. . .” https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/really-happened-jo-ann-m-radja by @Coach_Jo_Ann on @LinkedIn  

 

Another quotation from the American Philosopher Tom Morris is:  Service puts others first.  And, ironically, it’s in the acts of service that we most often feel our best and become our best.

WordPress has had a philosophy and culture of service over the past five years that I have been a member.  Many of you also believe Service is important.   All the best to you this week as you Choose Who You Want to be Known As.

“‘Illusion of Trust’ as an Ethical Value”

Aside

imagesWDEAZYJYWeightedTRUSTequationGoogle110514

When I was growing up, I often heard the phrase, “What does your gut tell you?”  or, “I’ve got a sick feeling in my stomach about this.” The phrase of listening to your gut has come into vogue again because neuroscience has recognized the gut communicates to the brain faster than your heart.  Why is this important to know as we just finished the Halloween and Election events?  Perhaps it is because trust is still an illusion.  We want it, we rely on it and when it is not present in our lives, it causes disharmony that we learn to live with or just accept it because “that’s the way it is.”

While we trust our guts to assist us as we get ready for the early Winter weather in the month of November, we can learn to trust our guts in other situations.  As you Choose Who You Want to be Known As this week, what positive value do you want people to know about you?  Have a great week.

Yesterday I published a Post on the social media platform of LinkedIn and I am sharing it with you below. (https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/article/20141105210316-32215190–illusion-of-trust-as-an-ethical-value?trk=prof-post)

“Illusion of Trust” as an Ethical Value  Nov 5 2014

The first way is: If you’re familiar with the 80/20 rule – speaking only 20% of the time in a relationship indicates it is dysfunctional. In other words, you give your own power of self-worth to another person.

The second way is: “Attraction creates the illusion of trust.” Fiffer recommends you listen to your gut when your judgment is being put aside for the other. When it comes down to it – why are you not paying attention to the feeling of, “something is not right here.”

Finally the third way appears to be derived from a social science or neuroscience perspective. Fiffer explains that when you are ruled by fear, you don’t act rationally and are unable to accept rational explanations. This appears to be so because the fear reaction, once triggered, will not stop until it is soothed.

As you manage your career, how often do you trust your gut in contract to your personal experience with an issue? How often has your gut enabled the right decision for you (or at least the best possible)? Do you keep an open mind first and then trust your gut, or the reverse? Interesting questions to consider during this first week in November.

I’m grateful I followed the linked and learned about The Good Men Project and hope to read Thomas G. Fiffer again. As you Choose Who You Want to be Known As, consider how often you trust and rely on your gut instincts to make informed decisions. Enjoy your month of November in your career.
