Dr. Jack Gilbert is a clinical associate professor and director of the Masters of Healthcare Innovation Program at Arizona State University. He is a noted expert in organizational and personal integrity and an award winning author, presenter, and consultant. His latest book, Strengthening Ethical Wisdom was published in 2007 by the American Hospital Association Press.
His clients come from a broad range of industries including health care (Inova Health System, Sinai Health System, UCSD Medical Center, Sharp Healthcare), financial services (Allstate, CNA, Lloyds TSB), retail/consumer (Sears, McDonalds, WH Smith), manufacturing (MeadWestvaco, Republic Paperboard), utilities (Illinova, First Energy Nuclear Operating Company), hospitality (Sycuan Casino and Resort), and more.
Jack holds his doctorate from The George Washington University where his dissertation focused on the role of ethics in decision-making. He is a fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives and a member of the National Speakers Association.
Over the course of working with hundreds of executives, business leaders, and employees, Jack has observed the phenomenon of ethical erosion. Research shows that it is the small steps and small decisions that lead individuals and their organizations into ethical conflicts,
a slippery slope that can ultimately undermine the organization’s viability and credibility.
He provides his clients with thought-provoking examples of ethical challenges and the concrete steps that individuals and organizations can take to encourage an environment where strong ethics tapping latent wisdom flourish.
“I still hear rave reviews from my colleagues about your morning session on the everyday erosion of personal and organizational ethics… you did a remarkable job of addressing a potentially dry and somber topic with great humor, sensitivity, and business relevance.”
