ethical challenges that stories may present. At the same time, value the concept of “prosecuting
the copy”; expect editors to question facts, ask for verification, and minimize the use of
Recognize the difference between those who ask good questions about ethical challenges or
concerns and “story killers.” Help people understand the difference between critical thinking
skills and simply criticizing. Listen to people who dare to bring bad news to their leaders.
Help people identify and use language that encourages “green light” thinking. “How can we tell
this challenging story, taking into consideration our ethical concerns?” “What are some good
alternatives we could consider?” Language is part of the culture. What words define ethical
decision-making in yours?
11. 10 TIPS FOR LEADERSHIP (CONTINUED)…
Recognize that strong vocal personalities can intimidate others, and may chill
valuable contrarian views. Support and encourage employees to speak up, even if
they are introverted, new to the team, or feel they lack the standing. Be wary of
the perception or reality that “star performers” in your organization are held to
different standards than others.
Develop and use written ethics guidelines, but encourage people to use them as
part of deeper discussion and decision-making, not as a rulebook. Consistency is
not always a virtue. “What we did last time” may not be the best decision for a
situation with different dimensions.

successes, their failures
13. 10 TIPS FOR LEADERSHIP (CONTINUED)…
• Always be available to help your team make tough calls, but resist the temptation
to do it all yourself. The best leaders build teams that can make sound decisions
on their own
• Help all staff members understand the importance of sharing ethical decision-
making with the people they serve; explain coverage decisions in publications and
newscasts; respond to those who contact them with concerns.
• Remember that written codes of conduct, ethics or practice tell employees what
the organization stands for (or won’t stand for), but the primary influence on the
staff is you, the leader. Your works and deeds set the standards for your team.
They watch you and listen to you for the real story of what matters.
