Ethical Allies

Here is a second tip on making ethics a part of your success:

Find ethical allies. Even if you are in general ethical agreement with your employer, you will have varying degrees of ethical agreement with individual employees. Identify those with whom you have a high level of ethical agreement and make them your allies. If possible, include them among the individuals with whom you work closely. While there are many areas in which individuals may disagree, shared ethics makes agreement on other matters easier. The better you get to know your ethics cohorts, the better the chances that they will support your advancement. Your advancement is not at the expense of their ethics.
