Executives Learn Ethics the Hard Way: From Marines
Stars and Stripes ran a fascinating article a couple of days ago that I think many readers of The White Rhino Report will find worthy of their time and attention. The article, "Executives learn ethics the hard way: From Marines" is written by Jim Michaels and originally appeared in USA Today.
The article caught my attention because it describes an innovative program that involves taking business executives out of their element and comfort zone and thrusting them into field training exercises at the Marine Corps base in Quantico, Virginia. Having spent a week at Quantico myself a few summers ago, I was fascinated. to see what these business leaders had experienced and learned.
