My book, Virtue Ethics in Business, was written to introduce business executives to the idea that virtue ethics is a way of thinking that is completely based on the actual values of business. The notion of virtue ethics is that you should always act in accordance with virtues, and that the values of a person’s life should only come into play when it is in your best interest.
In our business, we work hard to be good at what we do and are rewarded for it. But the rewards don’t come every day. Business schools teach us to be good at what we do, but we are not always good at it. We have to work at it and over time our performance improves.
A good example of how well you work at business is the famous “tough love” ad. It’s one of the best ways to be able to make you smile in the face of pressure and bullying. When I was growing up, my father had a very strict style of life that everyone would try to emulate, but I have always got my own style in the business. You had to be very careful with your work, but still, it always worked.
The ad is from the late 1970s, when the corporate world was a very different place. The idea was that if you worked hard enough, you could achieve a level of success that would allow you to get a raise. The ad was a way to show people that you could work hard and that you could achieve your goals. The problem, as I see it, was that people were always in awe of their own success.
I actually find this attitude somewhat depressing. I’ve come to realize that success is not something that you can achieve; it is something that is achieved. I think that in the early 2000s, there was a lot more of a spirit of “I can do that” than “I can do this, therefore I am good”, which is a very negative attitude, believe it or not.
This attitude is prevalent in our society, especially in business. The word “virtue” comes from the Greek word “virtus” meaning “the way” (as in “the way you do business”). In our era of “virtue-ethics” the word “virtue” has been replaced with “virtue ethics.
virtue ethics is the practice of doing what you ought to do to get the best results for yourself. It is based on the idea that we are all responsible for our own well-being and that everyone is entitled to a fair chance to have a good day.

It is based on the idea that we are all responsible for our own well-being and that everyone is entitled to a fair chance to have a good day. So it isn’t necessarily about doing what’s right or wrong, but it’s about being aware of what you ought to do and doing it to the best of your ability.
Virtue ethics applies to business as much as it does to life in general. The difference between business people and most ordinary people is that business people are often more focused on money and the bottom line, while most people are more focused on the people they are working for. It is because of this focus that many businesspeople have a tendency toward hypocrisy.
When people talk about virtue ethics, they usually mean that you should do something because doing so will get you more money. Well, that’s true of some people, but not so true of most businesspeople. Some businesspeople will do everything they can to make their customers happy, even if it means doing things the customer doesn’t like.
