America’s Ethical Illness and the Need for Ethical Health
Professionals have invested much time and money in their academic degrees and credentials. From any President of the United States, to any U.S. Supreme Court Justice, to any CEO of a Fortune 100 corporation, and on down to the rest of us, leaders in this nation are an educated and credentialed lot.
Healthy leadership practices, informed and driven by healthy ethics, do not concur or appear simultaneously, as necessary concomitants in positions of power with high salaries. Healthy leadership and healthy ethics appear only in healthy leaders. Since we are a democracy in which we elect our leaders, we must add that healthy leaders with healthy ethics only are elected by a healthy democratic electorate.
This is our problem today. We have become a nation so preoccupied with materialism, consumerism, and with the outward signs of worldly attainment, we have not lost, we gradually just tossed aside the precious treasure of our Declaration of Independence and our Bill of Rights for the tinsel glitter of greed and selfishness.
Tom Brokaw wrote a book titled, The Greatest Generation, which honored the generation who lived through the Great Depression and then went on to win, with the assistance of our Allies, World War II. What made that generation great was they knew deprivation and hardship. They learned how to share and help others. They learned that families had to stick together. They embraced the truth they had to risk death to save their nation and world against despotism.
Tough times drive us to our knees. On our knees, the wisest among us look up to God and ask for help and guidance, for wisdom to see the right way, for strength to persevere, for protection that leads to safety and life, here and eternal.
Invest in Healthy Leadership Ethics
You either have continuing education funds, or you have some disposable income to use for your own development. The question we pose to you is, “Will you invest in becoming a better person, a better member of your family, a better professional at work, and a better member of American society?“
Leadership Ethics Online is here to teach you ethics, grounded in the Bible, illuminated by every human discipline. We are here then to coach you on how to develop your moral compass, deep inside you. Then on how to let that compass guide you in your family relationships. Then on how to carry your integrated ethics into your workplace, and beyond into American society.
You must make the choice as to whether you wish to use your corporate budget, or your personal funds, for such an investment. The journey, should you embark on it, will be both easy and difficult. You already have within you some healthy values and foundations. Some you take from the Bible. Some are just proven truths you will learn also are found in scripture. Yet you have within you also some habits of thought, emotional disarray, and behavioral habits needing displacement and removal. These take time and, often, some disciplined, guided struggle.
America needs healthy leaders, and a healthy people. Decide today you will make the investment to become a healthy leader with ethics built upon the ethical bedrock of the Bible’s teachings. In this decision you will see how much God loves you, Who offers you a divine and loving hand, to walk you through our difficult times.
