Get-Things-Done Approach to Ethics

  • In an Interview with the Center for Creative Leadership, Mark Pastin states that he is not a fan of books about ethics because most are ideological instead of addressing how to reach ethical decisions. This is why Mark's approach in his new book, Making an Ethical Difference, is rooted in the idea that, when trying to solve an ethical dilemma, it's more important to agree on an action than to agree on all of the underlying justifications for that action.

Mark Pastin’s New Book Published

  • In November 2013, Mark released his second book, Make an Ethical Difference: Tools for Better Action. Mark argues that we can make a difference in society’s ethical level, and we don’t need ethics “experts” to tell us how. He believes that we all have an innate ethical sense—what he calls an “ethics eye.” With examples drawn from his decades of experience advising governments, corporations, and NGOs, Mark shows how to identify competing interests, analyze the facts, understand the viewpoints, measure the benefits of different outcomes, and build consensus.
