Moral Intelligence

While in graduate school the topic of bringing together moral principles with improving business progress is a popular subject matter. The concept is called moral intelligence and its main focus is the execution of moral principles in the business world. The way my brain operates, what works for an organization or business should also work in the black community. Moral intelligence looks at leadership, integrity, the ability to forgive, care and concern, values and what dictates your morality. One of the areas highlighted is moral responsibility, and in a majority of the books on moral intelligence responsibility and accountability are most significant.  A philosophy I have adopted is no separation between what business is, and what is personal. There is no acting in professional social settings versus being at home. This may be a perspective that has come with age, however when you are “keeping it real” you do not have to cover your tracks. A foundation of moral intelligence is the establish pattern of being honorable and consistent with values and beliefs. The only problem with this is if you are totally off base and do not acknowledge it. However, if there is a moral standard to live by, then a goal of mine would be to introduce moral and emotional intelligence to our communities. Glenn D. Andrews
