Consider Yourself Ethical? Think Again, Says New Research
When confronted with an ethical dilemma, most of us like to think we would stand up for our principles. But we are not as ethical as we think we are, according to the author, the Rex and Alice A. Martin Professor of Business Ethics at the University of Notre Dame's Mendoza College of Business and co-author of "Blind Spots: Why We Fail to do What's Right and What to do About it." "A blind spot is an unknown obstacle that prevents us from seeing our unethical behavior," the author explains.
