“Richard Shell’s latest book, The Conscience Code, gives us a wise, actionable 10-step guide to holding onto our integrity at work. He shows us how to achieve the most important professional goal of all -- living in accordance with our dearest core values.”  

-- Angela Duckworth, Founder, Character Lab; New York Times bestselling author of GRIT.

STAND UP FOR YOUR VALUES. PROTECT YOUR INTEGRITY.

CHANGE IS HAPPENING. HOW WILL YOU LEAD THROUGH IT?

The social challenges facing us in the 2020’s are radically different than those we faced even one generation ago. Meet the new leaders, or Rebuilders, who are moving us forward and learn how to apply their same effectiveness, qualities, and attributes to you own leadership.

The essential guide to standing up for your values at work.

A fast-track colleague elbowing their way up the corporate ladder in your organization is faking their sales reports. Your entrepreneur boss asks you to lie to would-be investors. The team leader is a serial sexual harasser. What should you do? Nobody prepared you for this part of professional life. You face a gut-wrenching choice: “go along to get along” or risk your job by speaking up for what you know is right.

At the Wharton School, MBA students have shared all these stories, and many more, with award-winning Professor G. Richard Shell. They want to stay true to themselves but fear the consequences of speaking up—for their families, office relationships and, ultimately, their careers. They are not alone. Surveys show that more than 40% of employees report seeing ethical misconduct at work, and most fail to report it—killing office morale and allowing the wrong people to set the example.

Shell created The Conscience Code to point to a better path: recognize that these conflicts are coming, learn to spot them, then follow a research-based, step-by-step approach for resolving them skillfully. By committing to the Code, you can replace regret with long-term career success as a leader of conscience.

THE CONSCIENCE CODE...

Solves a crucial problem faced by professionals everywhere: What should they do when they are asked to compromise their core values to achieve organizational goals?

Teaches readers to recognize and overcome the five organizational forces that push people toward actions they later regret.

Lays out a systematic, values-to-action process that people at all levels can follow to maintain their integrity while achieving true success in their lives and careers.

Every organization talks about values. But how can we uphold those values when bosses and peers are behaving badly? The Conscience Code delivers the answer. This powerful and practical book brings the science of persuasion to the problem of doing the right thing—showing leaders at every level how to stand up for their deepest beliefs.
