"Show of hands-who in this group has integrity?" It's with this direct and often uncomfortable question that Robert Chesnut, General Counsel of Airbnb, begins every presentation to new employees. Defining integrity is difficult. Once understood as "telling the truth and keeping your word," it was about following not just the letter but the spirit of the law.

He explains the rationale and legal context for the ethics andpractices, and presents scenarios to illuminate the nuances of thinking deeply and objectively about workplace culture. We will always need governments to manage defense, infrastructure, and basic societal functions. But, Chesnut argues, the private sector has the responsibility to use sensitivity and flexibility to make broader progress-if they act with integrity"-- Provided by publisher.
