Compromise Situations and the Oath

MBA alumnus and author of The Compromise Trap Eliabeth Doty has a very interesting take on misconceptions about compromise at work and how the MBA Oath helps address them. Doty argues that a proactive, self-aware approach is an important part of organzational and individual integrity: 

Not knowing how susceptible we are to situational influences can lead to less ethical behavior because we are unprepared and ill-equipped to counter these powerful situational forces – or fail to create the set of relationships, touchstones and practices that enable us to self-activate our values regardless of the environment.

How can the Oath be strengthened as a shared touchstone that reinforces integrity?
