The discovery of ethical intelligence opened new possibilities to influence individuals’ evolution. Ethical intelligence in business defines the value adding possibilities, the influence on the environment, time management, strategic planning and focusing.
The apparent paradox is that it is the deepest intelligence of the human mind, but at the same time it is the intelligence that evolves with the maturity of individuals and can be influenced.
It has to be considered that in the business world different activities require different ethical approaches in order to be successful. For example:
A business is consistent when the individuals dealing with it have the ethics required by the activity.
When the ethics is inferior to what is needed, it necessarily inhibits growth installing a “business growth virus” in the organization.
If the ethics used by individuals is superior to what is needed, they install a “business profit virus” in the organization that increases costs and affects profitability.
Ethics is implicit in everyday actions, including language. Therefore, it can be defined, measured and fostered.
The rational knowledge of ethical intelligence has an enormous benefit for individuals in organizations in order to ensure consistency for growth and profitability.
