This is last post in the Avoid Fatal Ethics Mistakes series. I appreciate all of the positive comments especially on Linked In. Always feel free to comment here as well.
If you are not sure of an action, try explaining it to someone whose judgment you trust. This is not because you will benefit from what the other person has to say – although you probably will. But you will benefit primarily from your own attempt to explain the action. When you can not give an explanation you consider plausible, you are risking a fatal ethics mistake.
