Now you'll know the most common reasons people will compromise their ethics and how you can prevail over these moral obstacles and realizing how applying the Golden Rule to business builds morale, increases productivity,and keeps clients coming back.

Upon completion of this program you will be able to:

This course gave a deeper perspective on the meaning of good ethics. It started a bit slow, but picked up along the way and brought up a few very interesting points. I recommend it! I would like to see more ethics courses...

Connie Messer, LMT, BCTMB

The book is from 2003. While the core of the information is relatively timeless, some of the examples are dated. The book itself is actually really good and a quicker read than I expected. It can be a little repetitive, but the author offers good points. And for an ethics CEU, it kept my attention really well.

Madison Cowan, LMT, BCTMB

I live by the Golden Rule as a rule, in my business and in life. So when this course was mysteriously in my email one day, and saw what the content was, I was super happy that someone else felt the same way nowadays.

Hayley Lewis-Nelson, LMT

I found this ethics course to be something I see a lot of people lacking in their personal and professional lives. I have found that when I live my life obeying the Golden Rule everything flourishes. I was glad to see a course that made people look inside themselves. This ethics course is a deeper look inside and explains what drives people to make the good and the bad decisions they do.

Chanda Garner, LMBT

I really enjoyed Maxwell's book. It is not new information, but it is re-enforcing for my ethics.

Barbara Alpert, LMT

I loved the book! Even though we all understand the concept of the Golden Rule, it is so good to revisit it, self-reflect and share with others in our life. It was somehow very refreshing to read very applicable to everyday situations we confront.

Lori K. Loveland, LMBT

This course was great! Much better than I had expected it to be, the material explained things out clearly and concisely.

Summerlyn Thompson, LMT

Being a member of John Maxwell's Team, I was excited to see one of his books featured as a continuing education course. I always learn so much to help me be a better person with John's material.

Glenda Waters, LMBT

I have been a massage therapist for over 15 years. I have taken many ethics courses. This one, is by far, the best one I have ever taken. It brings together all of the aspects of interacting with people and also yourself. It is the foundation of ethics...the Golden Rule! We have all heard that it is important to keep, but this program breaks it down into why and how to implement it in your entire life, not just as massage therapist.

Judy Anderson, LMT, BCTMB

Excellent course. I think everyone should at least read this book.

Vicki Wells, LMT

Thanks for offering this valuable course. Loved reading the book. It was full of great and important lessons. This book should be compulsory reading for all people, not just those in business!

Dianna LeBeau, LMT

I really appreciate the wide variety of Ethics courses you offer. I'm very happy you offered this one in particular - it is the best Ethics course I've ever taken (great content), and even one of the best online courses I've taken. Great author. Also, your website and course were user friendly. Thank you.

Darlene Marmer, BCTMB

This was a great course. Love John Maxwell's writings.

Christie Chadwick, LMT, LMBT

The choice of this book for ethical CE is a gift. I am always involved with religious studies and a lot of times I felt as an outsider in the world. This course not only inspired me in my profession but inspired me to continue my personal growth. I was very impressed to read that there are other business people who follow ethical standards.
