Caught Between Right and Right

You cannot talk about leadership without talking about ethics. According to Merriam-Webster, ethics is "the discipline dealing with what is good and bad and with moral duty and obligation." If you read the definition closely, you see that ethics does not focus on "bad" but gives "good" equal billing. The right-versus-right ethical dilemma causes us to pause and look deep within self.

Rushworth Kidder, Institute of Global Ethics, who passed away earlier this year left a great leadership legacy. In this talk, Kidder delves into the right versus right dilemma that often cuts us to our very core.
