Welcome to Bob's Site

Bob Stone is an internationally known author and speaker on ethical leadership and on leading change.  His new book, just out, is The Ethics Challenge: Strengthening Your Integrity in a Greedy World, with Mick Ukleja.

Bob’s seminar, The Ethics Challenge: Essential Skills for Leading and Living, is unlike any mandatory ethics training: no talk about bribery, fraud, or conflict of interest. He covers what it means to behave ethically, and how that differs from merely behaving legally or in compliance with the rules. Bob starts with the basics: keep your word and follow the Golden Rule. He finishes with three essential skills for living and leading. These skills are easy to describe, not so easy to live, but living them will sharpen your ethical sensitivity and make it easier to keep strong and to follow your good intentions.

Bob teaches business ethics at the University of Redlands. and serves on the Governing Council of the Ukleja Center for Ethical Leadership at California State University, Long Beach.

He served for twelve years as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Installations, where he radically decentralized authority, cut regulations, started a quality revolution, and occasionally got into hot water.  He then spent six years at the White House leading the effort to reinvent government.

Tom Peters called Bob's first book, Confessions of a Civil Servant: Lessons in Changing America's Government and Military, "maybe the best text ever on large scale organizational change.  Anywhere."

The book has been used as a textbook at Harvard’s Kennedy School, USC, Texas's LBJ School, SUNY-Albany, Washington State, and Montana.

Bob has taught graduate students, undergrads, and government executives all over the U.S., Europe, and the Middle East.  The audiences love his seminars and workshops because he gives an entertaining picture of how large organizations really work, and how they can be made to work better and more ethically. His message is as applicable to business as it is to government.
