Applying the Principles of Humanism to Business Management

Aug 2019 Humanistic Management Professionals Lunch and Learn – Guest – Jennifer Hancock – author of Applied Humanism: How to create more effective and ethical businesses. Hosted by the International Humanistic Management Association.

The way to be an ethical leader – is to integrate ethics into your decision making. It’s central to it. The question – what a good outcome is – is a moral question. You first have to define what you mean by good. Good can mean – more money – or getting the project done. Or it can mean – a problem is solved in a way that benefits humanity, your staff, your company and that makes you money. An ethical leader is the person who defines ‘good’ in a holistic and humanistic way in terms of well-being and flourishing and not just in an economistic way.
