Ethics Sage Founder Dr. Steven Mintz Improves Ethical Standards in Business Through Interpersonal Skill Development
Oceano, CA, October 03, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Ethics Sage Founder Dr. Steven Mintz is available for presentations that address the importance of ethical standards in business. Dr. Mintz can speak on a variety of topics related to creating a more ethical organization environment including developing interpersonal skills for any team member in a corporation from new recruits to executive level management and CEOs. Interpersonal skills are an overlooked but necessary skill in the workplace that improves ethical standards in business. This is especially important for newer generations of workers that come into the workplace with weaker business ethics than their established counterparts.
Dr. Mintz says, “Soft skills have long been ignored in university curricula for business students. While there has been some change during the past ten or fifteen years and a shift to some soft-skill education for future business leaders, the fact is the technical skills still rule the day. So, the change needed must start with university curricula and that won’t happen until business leaders and recruiters demand it. Soft skill development is more important today than ever before because new recruits come in with a social media mentality meaning they communicate through text messages and postings on social media sites. This avoids the very interaction needed to develop the soft skills so necessary to success.”
Dr. Mintz has written opinion editorials on a variety of ethics issues and is a regular contributor to the Pacific Coast Business Times. He was recently interviewed by the NY Times for a piece on workplace ethical dilemmas. To learn more about ethical standards in business and speaking engagements contact Dr. Steven Mintz directly.
