Examination and critiquing of moral beliefs and practices involves investigation on specific norms, behaviors and behaviors, then judging them to determine if they are mutually contradictory. Ethics is structured according to the code of conduct of people, including consideration of every person’s opinion. Attempts are then made to establish a fundamental principles and theories that could rationalize and harmonize people’s diverse moral beliefs. Ability to identify the right behaviors are supposed to improve the relationship between people, therefore, making the world a better place. There are two standards of ethics namely organizational ethics and personal ethics.
Humans through ethics create morality, a personal or social code of conduct. The principles for one's morality are founded by the ethical standards of their society. Through experience, education, religion, and morality humans develop morals based on social and religious ethics. Morals give humans the ability to distinguish the morally right/good decision to make when confronted with a moral dilemma. However, in some instances we are confronted with a morally problematic situation in which it is difficult to distinguish the morally correct solution.
Contrastingly to both, meta-ethics is the study of the meaning of ethics itself, gauging the meaning of ethical language, and taking into consideration the authority of moral claims and the effects of personal preference. Bearing this in mind, it is possible to note that meta-ethical theory poses questions such as 'Can we define which action is 'good', 'bad', 'right', or 'wrong'?' and again, 'Is it possible to give a definition to 'good', 'bad', 'right', or 'wrong' in themselves?' Admittedly, all four of these words are related from a moral point of view. But, if we could measure 'good' completely and accurately, then we would be able to mea... ... middle of paper ... ...tion.
According to James Rest’s the process of ethical decision making developed out of a desire to piece together theories and research on moral development and behavior from a variety of perspectives. Moral judgment, moral motivation, and moral sensitivity. Moral judgment refers to defining and assessing which conceivable answers for the ethical issue have moral defense. This progression in the process requires thinking through the conceivable decisions and potential outcomes to figure out which are morally stable. Moral motivation refers to the intention to choose the moral decision over another solution representing a different value.
Under the APA Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct, section 8.02 explains informed consent. Research is important but guidelines are necessary to protect the researchers and the participants and to make sure the results are valid and reliable. Ethics Many refer to ethics as the moral stature of what a person believes is right or wrong. Ethics do help a reasonable person refrain from doing what society has determined to be wrong such as murder or rape, as well as other wrongs and they influence morals, beliefs and principles. Ethics are logical and rational standards of right and wrong that guide a human being by determining what a person should do.
These moral rules and principles are otherwise known as "rules of conduct.” A theory is a structured set of statements used to explain (or predict) a set of facts or concepts. A moral theory, then, explains why a certain action is wrong -- or why we ought to act in certain ways. In short, it is a theory of how we determine right and wrong conduct. Also, moral theories provide the framework upon which we think and discuss in a reasoned way, and so evaluate, specific moral issues. In presenting a moral theory, are we merely describing how people, in their everyday 'doings' and 'thinkings,' form a judgement about what is right and wrong.
Introduction The purpose of this paper is to analyze best principles for implementing and support ethical behavior in an organization and diversity management. The researcher will recommend policies for ethics and diversity management. Furthermore, the researcher will identify policies for monitoring unethical behavior and injustice in an organization. Finally, the researcher will provide the rationale for selected policies. Ethics Policies According o Golja and Paulisic (2010) ethics is define as a system of moral principles, the rule of conduct recognized in respects to a particular class of human actions or a particular group, culture and the moral principles of an individual.
Social Responsibility and Ethics Social responsibility is an ethical theory, in which individuals are accountable for fulfilling their civic duty; the actions of an individual must benefit the whole of society. In this way, there must be a balance between economic growth and the welfare of society and the environment. If this equilibrium is maintained, then social responsibility is accomplished. What it Means to be Socially Responsible and Ethical? The theory of social responsibility is built on a system of ethics, in which decisions and actions must be ethically validated before proceeding.
(2005), describes ethical leadership as “the demonstration of normatively appropriate conduct through personal actions and interpersonal relationships, and the promotion of such conduct to followers through two-way communication, reinforcement, and decision-making” (p. 120). Further, they engage in transactional efforts to communicate ethical standards, detect and deter deviant behaviours and make decisions that have important ethical implications. In addition, Trevino, Hartman and Brown (2000) assert that, there are three fundamental pillars which describes ethical leadership. The first one being termed as the personal integrity of the leader, also called as the moral person component of ethical leadership. The second one puts emphasis on the extent of the leader’s ability to cultivate integrity among his or her followers.
Synthesis Paper Ethical behavior is distinguishing and performing ones actions accordingly. The trouble with this statement stems the questions of what is considered as “right.” The definition of this word varies according to individuals, customs, and beliefs. Ethical behavior represents a value system that has been developed from a logical analysis of society, established by fairness, integrity, the desires and privileges of people and oneself. Ethical leadership comprises of two aspects. First, ethical leaders have to perform and make ethical judgments.
