Ethics in an Organization

Value
Personal Source
with Examples
Justify the Value's Position in the List. Include any challenges to employing these values consistently when making personal and organizational decisions.
Integrity First I always strive to do the right thing even when no one is looking. This will prevent me from getting in trouble and making poor decisions that may and will affect my organization. I have seen many people in the Air Force losing ranks, money and even their families for lack of integrity. Few years ago some large corporations fail shot in this department, Enron for example. Because some individuals lack of integrity these companies suffered major losses. This could be a bog problem because greed can push people to make bad choices; this is why this value is on my number one.
Service before Self Putting your desires aside in order to put those of the organization before yours is something hard to do, but at the end both "me and the organization" are going to benefit from it. This is something that people do almost everyday in the Air Force. When people place our ambitions and desires before everything else we may get the tunnel vision and deviate from what is best for that of the organization. This is something that may have been the main or one of the problems with the executives at Enron. I think after integrity this is the second most important value to have in an organization.
Excellence in all we do
Why give a 100% when we can do better and give a 110% for the organization? I believe in doing a task right the first time with minimum errors as possible. By doing our jobs right by giving all we have to the organization will promote a better work environment and this in the end will catch the attention of potential customers. I think this value is link to the above values. I truly believe that if we do not do our job right if we do not give it all we have accidents will happen, people will get use to cutting corners and this can affect the organization as a whole. Accidents have happen and even people have died for lack of excellence in all we do. Organizations have lost big contracts too and I refuse to let my organization down.
Trustworthiness Trust is a big part of business these days. People will invest in your organization by the level of trust and confidence you give them. I could not work in an environment where people have trust issues. In the military we all depend on each other and trust is a big factor. I have to trust my peers, supervisors and subordinates in order for the missions to succeed. I could not feel safe at work is I do not trust them and I guarantee they feel the same about me as well.
Personal Gain
I tend to place my self at last when it comes to almost everything I do. I tend to live my life as service before self but when there is space I will try to gain something for me, for example a promotion, award. I place this last because I was raise by my mother to give myself to the organization. At the end this will be rewarding. I can use the Air Force as an example if it was for personal gain that I am doing this I would be an officer or even better I would we working in the civilian sector where I could make more money for what I am doing right now. I am in the Air Force because I like the job not the money or anything else for that matter.
