The Ethical Executive

Standford University Press has published a timely book, The Ethical Executive: Becoming Aware of the Root Causes of Unethical Behavior: 45 Psychological Traps that Every One of Us Falls Prey To by Robert Hoyk and Paul Hersey. An important topic to examine in light of the abuses that have arisen in the last couple of years, the book describes 45 "unethical traps" into which anyone can fall. The authors explore these traps, many that are psychological in nature, and how they can distort your perception of right and wrong. The authors take account of these realities, and offer a "real-world" method that will predict, preclude and, offer a way out of these traps.
