"Ethics is the activity of man directed to secure the inner perfection of his own personality." Albert Schweitzer

A trainer's personal ethics will determine his/her reputation. Good personal ethics are essential to promoting professionalism. By working within the parameters of an ethical paradigm, you – the trainer – will be better equipped to nurture the minds of your trainees as you demonstrate a firm sense of integrity and resilience in challenging situations. This will not only increase your productivity but also your profitability. Developing a personal Ethics programme takes time and effort, but doing so will improve more than your training business; it will change lives.

An individual's ethics will have a far reaching influence on all who interact with him/her. This includes trainees, employees, suppliers, competitors, etc. All of these groups will have an effect on the way a trainer's ethics are developed. It is a two-way street; the influence goes both ways, which makes understanding ethics a very important part of doing business today. According to Robert Noyce, "If ethics is poor at the top, that behaviour is copied down through the organisation." In our current era of instant information dissemination, it is even more important for organisations and personnel to maintain and communicate clear ethical standards.
