Jim Lichtman has been writing and speaking on ethics to corporations, associations and organizations since 1995. Feature stories and appearances include USA TODAY, the Washington Post, the Weekend Today Show in New York, National Public Radio's Weekend Edition, NY-1, and CNN's NewsNight with Aaron Brown.
The Washington Post called Jim's first book, The Lone Ranger's Code of the West – An Action-Packed Adventure in Values and Ethics, "…entertaining and informative." New York Daily News columnist Stanley Crouch called it, "an attempt to ring the bells of ethics and courage once more."
Jim's Op-Ed commentaries have appeared in the Philadelphia Inquirer, Chicago Tribune, Houston Chronicle, Minneapolis Star-Tribune, New York Daily News, and New York Times.
His latest book is WHAT DO YOU STAND FOR? – Stories About Principles That Matter. Using responses from Mario Cuomo to the Dalai Lama to a cross-section of ordinary citizens, Jim talks about the principles that matter and encourages each of us to live up to our highest aspirations by using a practical, clear-cut code of ethical values.
Jim is a member of the National Advisory Board for the Walter H. Capps Center for the Study of Ethics, Religion and Public Life at the University of California at Santa Barbara.
