Abstract

This paper discusses how career counseling, management coaching, and mentoring can assist in reducing today's lack of ethics in business by orienting future corporate leaders not only to identifying their skills, making better career choices, and becoming more productive and satisfied in their work, but also by explaining how to behave and decide properly when confronted with the myriad ethical dilemmas of the corporate world. Thus it is essential that they understand today's lack of business ethics, the foundation of ethical principles, and the requisite to critical ethical reasoning. To achieve this understanding and assist future corporate leaders in mastering the necessary ethical reasoning skills, career counselors, management coaches, and mentors must engage them in philosophical discussion on what is ethical in business in our present society.
