Who or What is the Ethics Giver?

In sum, my desire and goal as “the Ethics Giver” is to transmit my ethical knowledge and make the world a better place. 

It is an odd sounding name “the Ethics Giver.” Why not The Ethical Giver, The Ethical Teacher or even The Ethicist? A person could teach ethics but give ethics?

It is probably best to first discuss what I am not. I do not have a doctorate degree in ethics or philosophy nor am I a university professor teaching ethics courses. I do not profess to know all the ethical philosophies of every religion and culture. I am not a religious leader teaching morality.

So, what am I? I am a business executive with more than 45 years’ experience. After earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from Pace University, I worked my way up from a sales representative position to the general manager/vice president of a medical device company. For the last 30 years, I acquired knowledge of ethics from ancient sages in the holy books and modern-day thought leaders. I am an avid reader of business books.

I fight my ego every day to stay humble (which is the reason for the small “t” in the by-line). I do not wish to be portrayed as, The ONE.

As “the Ethics Giver”, I consider myself a person who passes along principles and knowledge of proper ethical behavior which I learned from others. My intention is to give the knowledge that I acquired through business experience and study to individuals engaging in business.

With humility, I believe and quote Albert Einstein: “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” From a religious perspective, I consider myself blessed every moment with the insight to apply my knowledge and experience to everyday ethical business decision-making.

Ethics is Smart Business
