Communication: Ethical and Moral Issues

Routledge
Free sample

This pioneering book, on the ethical and moral dimensions of communication and communication systems in the modern world, was originally published in 1974. It derived from an International Symposium on communication, consisting of world-class scholars ranging from philosophy and anthropology, to cybernetics and psychiatry, and from literary criticism to the social and behavioural sciences.

The uses of communication are ubiquitous. The breadth, depth, scope and reach of every human mind depends upon the communication experiences one has had, or is capable of having. How people confront one another depends upon the quality and reach of their individual minds – not solely on their words. This book provides an opportunity to explore with these far-ranging scholars the ethical, moral, and pragmatic communication dilemmas of our modern age. It is as pertinent today as it was when it was first published.

This book is about how the chief executivealong with everyone else directly involvedneeds to think about transforming an okay organization into a fully competent one. Everyone would like to have a more competent organization. There is a lot of fairy dust out there about how to accomplish that the easy way. But there is no easy way . . . that works. To customers and other stakeholders, it is the performance of the organization that matters. They could not care less about promises that are only sometimes kept. They expect performance. This book not only tells you how you have to think in order to make this happen but it offers many of the basic tools and techniques for doing so. Making a fully competent organization is a tough go, but it is doable. This book tells you how. It is based upon many years of successful, hands-on experience in creating fully competenteven greatorganizations of all sorts and sizes. With this book as your guide, you, too, could have that competent organization you dare to dream of. For the past forty-five years or so, I have been traveling the world doing hundreds of seminars for chief executives. My main contribution, however, has been working in the trenches with a few of them to help them make competent or even great organizations. Each is a complex endeavor that has to be customized to the particular organization and its particular executives. Ive talked about this. And Ive answered many questions about it. The time finally came to set forth how to think about doing this, as well as how to get started in actually implementing some of the basics. This book summarizes my unique approach to making high-performance organizations and the leadership required to do so. It is dedicated to those courageous and committed chief executives who volunteered to undergo the stresses and anguish of making great things happen. It is likely that I have learned as much from them as they have learned from me. We have been passionate partners in making great things happen.
"This splendid little “pocket” book will tell all of you leaders (“oracle”-style) what you need to know about communication to enhance your everyday performance and thus enable your success. In 53 succinct chapters, this pocket oracle sets forth the basic issues you absolutely need to understand from a highly pragmatic point of view. It is not derived from theories but from the author’s 45+ years as a CEO coach and consultant. What the author shares with you is what he has learned over all of those years, thousands of presentations, and being “in the trenches” with his client CEOs to partner with them in making thoroughly competent or high performance organizations. He worked with them through the implementation, where 95% of success comes from. You will want to keep this oracle handy, and refer to it often. Some of the distilled wisdom contained here is counter-intuitive. That’s because it is based on the realities and not on platitudes about communication. The key is how you talk to yourself. It is also about how you need to interpret the world in terms of your cause and your organization’s mission. On a day-to-day basis, this book is about how to succeed personally if you are the leader. There is nothing more basic and more crucial for your success than the communication that occurs daily in your office, in the hallways, in your head, or in front of customers. It will become your daily guidebook for understanding this most problematic of every leader’s life. It may take you where you have never gone before. But where you need to go in your thinking and doing."
