Talking Ethics with Rabbi Goldson


Libby is joined by Rabbi Yonason Goldson. Yonason is the director of Ethical Imperatives, LLC, where he works with leaders to create a culture of ethics that builds trust, sparks initiative, and drives productivity.  He’s a keynote and TEDx speaker, trainer, coach, and community rabbi, as well as a podcast host, columnist and author, repentant hitchhiker, world traveler, and retired high school teacher in St. Louis. He’s published hundreds of articles applying ancient rabbinic wisdom to the challenges of the modern secular world, and six books, most recently “Grappling with the Gray: An Ethical Handbook for Personal Success and Business {rosperity.”  

Libby and Yonason discuss:

  • How and why he became a rabbi
  • Why ethics are crucial to a successful business
  • How becoming a rabbi taught him a lot about business
  • Morality versus ethics
  • Understanding rights and responsibilities
  • The first recorded advice in history for a CEO
  • Why Yonason goes out of his way to not invoke religion (and why you don’t need a religious foundation to implement ethical principles)
  • Compliance as the enemy of ethics
  • Why he’s hopeful about the future of our world and ethics
