None of us are perfect.  What we do when faced with challenges or criticism defines who we are.  Business ethics - and being a good person - therefore is not about perfection.  It's a practice, and we work on it every day.  It's about making a thoughtful and defensible choice to care for as many people as possible, no matter what the circumstances  It's about accepting the world, and learning from it.  This is my teaching philosophy.
