Establishing and maintaining a strong ethical culture in any organization helps to ensure integrity with stakeholders, manage strategic planning, strengthen quality controls and promote a healthier public image. Very importantly - it instills TRUST, the most valuable commodity in any people transaction.
But most of all, in any workplace or other group endeavor, it is simply just the right thing to do. And if that is not enough, ABC will help you to realize the "Economics of Ethics."
This quote from arguably the greatest professional ice hockey player of all time demonstrates BOTH strategic thinking AND acting.
In the public agency, nonprofit or business arenas, a governing body (i.e. Board of Directors, City Council, etc.) sets policies, and management and staff implement and act on them.
In our process, through discussions and information gathering with key decision makers, employees, volunteers,
management and end-users (all stakeholders) - our system works through issues, conflicts, mission, vision, targets, barriers and success.
A good strategic plan is a useable plan.
