Dialog: Stop Working for Crazies

In my email newsletter today I invite readers to come here to comment on the following:

Can social responsibility really be achieved through corporate policy? I firmly believe social responsibility only flourishes from a base of personal responsibility. That means we must scale responsible behavior starting with ourselves, rather than scaling process or policy.

Here’s a tough question to ask yourself: Are you lending your skills to, and taking a paycheck from, a leader, organization, or clients with whom you are not totally aligned in terms of the true net value (i.e., taking into account the costs to people and planet) they are adding to society? Why?

What if we each just stopped working for such employers?

What do you think? Leave a comment.

P.S. See the rest of this email newsletter.
