"Are you an ethical person?" Regardless of your answer, a follow-up probe might be: "How do you know?" Your personal values reflect your beliefs, what you really care about. These values, if they really matter to you, are activated by and through your everyday decisions. How do you ensure that your values, those that reflect your best ethical self, are actually demonstrated in the choices you make on a daily basis? Sometimes what we say we value does not match our actual behavior. Being ethical requires the ability to discern and navigate competing values, continually striving to attain both personal and organizational goals with moral strength. This necessitates the development of skills that support personal governance and your moral competency. To be ethical, building moral strength needs to become a focus of your daily life, which calls for making a deliberate effort to apply the values you say you hold. In reading this book you will see how awareness of your thoughts and emotions-along with specific competencies-can influence your desire to do the right thing and bolster your ability to exercise professional moral courage at work. Drawing insight from the latest research in management, business ethics, organizational behavior, and psychology, this book is intended to help adult learners examine, leverage, and to continue to develop their best ethical selves in organizational life.
As the process of internationalization accelerates, comparative law scholars inevitably focus on the adaptation of legal cultures to new realities. It is particularly important, in the global world order as it stands today, to understand (as best we can) the 'inner workings' of two groups of lawyers: those in the United States, and those in the major European countries. In which ways do the two groups understand each other, and where do they go their separate ways? And what are the implications for the legal profession and its beneficiaries of their cultural and ideological differences?At a symposium held in Paris twelve scholars from Europe and the United States met to investigate and clarify these issues under two intimately related rubrics: realities and trends on the one hand, and ethics, rules and professional ideologies on the other. The participants have updated their original papers for this publication. In the course of their discussion they reveal which cultural realities persist and are likely to remain, and which trends are broadening the common ground on which lawyers act in both cultures. The result is the sharpest delineation we have yet of this vital concern of current comparative law.
The ability to negotiate the best deals is a crucial skill for anyone who wants to advance their career.
