As a supplementary approach, a manager can invest in a standard game plan to build trust, improve communication, and reduce risk. In summary, an experienced coach can call for a half-dozen plays:
1. Assert ethical values and behavioral expectations at the beginning of a project or relationship.
2. Articulate government or public ethical standards and their applicability to pro- ject operations and colleagues.
3. Notify and inform partners and collaborators covered by government or public service standards.
4. Support self-governance by private sector and nonprofit participants. 5. Prepare all parties for full disclosure and accountability. 6. Broadcast the principle of inexcusable ignorance; familiarity with public ser-
vice’s ethical standards is the responsibility of all parties.
