Ethics are a growing concern in all sectors of American culture. From businesses to all levels of schooling, as well as nonprofit companies, the values that guide business and teaching criteria are under scrutiny. But, does it take a scholarly textbook to understand how to create an ethical culture? No, Dwight Johnson has delved into the problems and presents practical solutions in his easy to read book, The Ethical Coach Leader: Developing Honor and Integrity.
A fiction book that has universal application, Johnson creates an intriguing story about a college coach who finds out that his star athlete failed a steroid test, putting the coach in the cross hairs of an ethical dilemma. During a couple of restless nights of sleep, Coach is visited by five ghosts: the Ghost of Example, the Ghost of Education, the Ghost of Experience, the Ghost of E-information, and the Ghost of Environment. Each has different advice for Coach on how to resolve his ethical dilemma. With the dreams haunting his every waking moment, Coach also seeks advice from two of his former mentors. The lessons Coach learns can be applied to any industry, business, school or individual life.
The Ethical Coach Leader challenges cultural mindsets and introduces new ideas on how to apply desperately needed teachings in ethics, integrity, honor and good character. This is a must read book for anyone who has influence on others or is in a leadership role.

Review by: Jill-Ann Guyette

(I was provided an ARC of this book in exchange for a honest review.)

I give this book ★★★★☆ 

Dwight Johnson writes an ethical leadership book that can be followed by everyone. He takes a beloved story (A Christmas Carol) and turns it into a learning experience for all. It doesn’t matter if you’re taking a leadership program through work or school; or maybe you’re experiencing an ethical debacle that you can’t wrap your mind around. This book will help guide you. ‘Coach’ is recommended to read the thirteen virtues that Ben Franklin wrote about in his autobiography. 

I believe The Ethical Coach leader would be one ‘Dr. Thorpe’ would recommend in the future. Well researched, wonderfully referenced and written in such a way that you feel you’re reading a story. Johnson has done a wonderful job with this quick but deep read. It will have you reflecting on your life and the ethical practices you’ve lived by.

I didn’t expect to enjoy this book. It’s not my usual go to. I certainly didn’t expect that the moment I put the book down I was recommending it to my colleagues. And I truly feel this is a book that should be used as teacher’s aids in ethical courses. I also believe that anyone who is looking to take on more of a leadership role within their workplace or community should take the time to read this book. 

It is well worth it and you will forever remember the Ghost of Experience, the Ghost of Education, the Ghost of Examples, the Ghost of Environment, and the Ghost of E-information. 

Happy Reading 

1. What inspired your story for The Ethical Coach Leader? 

Seeing the news, businesses, schools, and our military that do not use ethical behavior.  So I saw  what was happening and wondered why.  This lead me to research and write The Ethical Coach Leader.

2. What piece of advice do you have for somebody who is 

 an ethical dilemma?  

Do what is right and help clean up the dilemma and get an accountability buddy that will help you stay out of the nebulous area of an ethical dilemma.
