Bringing ethics to life in business

Wednesday November 12, 2014 Written by VCI Published in Economy

How do we bring ethics to life in our business or organisation?


The Virtues Biz Morning Tea this Wednesday will focus on ‘Questions Ethical Leaders Ask’ as it examines how we can bring the values of our people into harmony with our organisational values.
“I think most would agree there is an urgent need to inspire effort and loyalty to a set of ethical principles within organizations and businesses globally,” says Virtues Cook Islands Programme Manager Mark Henderson.
“Most people have an idea of what behaviour and which virtues would help their business or organization to prosper and thrive, and produce good fruit. The question many ask is how can we make it happen? This is one of the important questions we will discuss at Wednesday’s business event.”
Patron of Virtues Cook Islands, children’s rights advocate, and proud Cook Islander, Lynnsay Rongokea, will lead a discussion as guest speaker.
Businesses and organizations are encouraged to register and come along to the morning tea event to listen, share their ideas, and be part of the transformational potential of The Virtues Project.
VCI activities include events for business, Virtues themed staff training, executive consultation, mentoring, personal coaching and a professional counselling service. The Virtues Project is a global grassroots initiative created to inspire the practice of virtues in everyday life. The Virtues Project was founded in Canada in 1991 and was honoured by the United Nations during the International Year of the Family as a “model global programme for families of all cultures”.
The Virtues Project acknowledges that trusted leaders are the first to demonstrate integrity in the way they speak, act, and treat their colleagues and their clients. Every mission statement contains a promise of virtues such as honesty, service, and excellence. The Virtues Project provides tools for inspiring and developing these qualities of character in managers and staff.
The Virtues Biz Morning Tea will be held at Leadership House, Te Ipukarea Society, in Tupapa on Wednesday from 10-11am, and doors open from 9.45am. Spaces are limited to three people per organisation. For more information contact Henderson on 72400 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
