Professional ethics is a rare topic for a blog post (at least those blogs that I read), but it is an important subject where those of greater experience can pass on the benefit of that experience to those newer to the profession.
Which is exactly where my Post of the Month for April comes in. Marilyn Stowe passes on her wisdom in the sometimes tricky area of one's relationship with one's client. "I don’t socialise with clients", she says, "I don’t want favours; I don’t seek their friendship. That is because crossing the line can put you in a vulnerable position, and render you liable to make mistakes in your professional life. You might be tempted to take steps that otherwise you would not." Wise words indeed.
"Professional ethics: keeping your head in a difficult situation" is my Post of the Month for April 2010.
