"Two of the most glaring examples of academic oxymorons are the terms "business ethics" and "moral leadership."

The Institute of Management Consultants Present
Meaning, Money, and Morality
Dealing with Continuing Corruption in a Post-Enron Business Climate
Dr. Al Gini, Loyola University Chicago
What happened at Enron, Worldcom, Andersen, Adelphia, Boeing, and in the mutual fund industry? How were these major corporations transformed from paragons of virtue to pariahs? What went wrong? Was it a failure of corporate structure? Personal character? Leadership? Ethics? Yes! Yes! Yes! And Yes!
But at its core, this collective scandal is really about the breakdown of a very basic virtue in business and in life – trust. Trust is the social glue that allows us to operate in the business community with others. Trust is confidence in the predictability, reliability, dependability, and integrity of others. Without trust, societies and business falter and
collapse. Dr. Gini examines the importance of trust in our lives, the importance of re-establishing ethical standards in business, and the role that leadership plays in both creating and modeling rules and standards of appropriate ethical conduct.
Al Gini is a member of the Department of Philosophy and the Institute of Human Resources and Industrial Relations at Loyola University Chicago. He is co-founder and associate editor of Business Ethics Quarterly, the Journal of the Society for Business Ethics and senior consultant for the Ethical Leadership Group.
