HIGH CHARACTER IS THE
KEY TO FINANCIAL SUCCESS
Who is to say what is right and what is wrong? When it comes to ethics, in NSA we find that members have a strong sense of right and wrong, but they disagree
strongly when you give them a question embedded with an ethical
dilemma and ask each how he or she would deal with the situation.
Members try to rationalize their positions. Even if multiple colleagues discuss a dilemma with the National Speakers
Association (NSA) Code of Professional Ethics before them,
you would often have disagreement. Still, some answers are
better than others.
Here are a few questions we asked NSA members at Influence
2015 as part of our program called “To Yell the Truth!” that
could easily apply to you, and how you might use the NSA
Code of Professional Ethics to resolve the problems.
