Officer misconduct scenario Police officers must not simply be held to the same standards as members of the public. They must be held to a higher standard.
This is illustrated in the following scenario: He only confessed once the link was made between his log-in information and the search. This combination of dishonesty and poor judgment is a compelling argument for the officer's immediate dismissal, despite the fact that he has an otherwise largely unblemished record.

Most people are willing to stretch or manipulate their moral codes under certain circumstances, particularly when they can find ways of maintaining a self-concept or project the image of being honest. A psychopath would be theoretically less concerned with self-concept or reputation than the ordinary person. Like anyone else, psychopaths will be driven to "minimize risk to themselves," and ensure they do not get caught Grohol, n.

Bennett assumes an old school, straightforward approach to ethics in The Book of Virtues: A Treasury of Great Moral Stories. The book contains several chapters on different moral or ethical concepts, like self-discipline, responsibility, courage, honesty, loyalty, and faith.
Part of what makes Bennett's book unique is that he uses stories to show what the ethical principles mean. The stories in the book are great, because readers are familiar with many of them including the ones that have been appropriated by Disney such as Pinocchio. This makes the ethical concepts easier to understand, because I can apply the principles to my own life. While readers have heard it all before, Bennett presents the material in a unique and fresh way to show why ethics are important.
As the author puts it, it's not about being caught for doing something wrong; it's about doing the right thing. Leading People Protocol and Uop. If there is one thing that I feel I truly understand, it is the fact that leadership is a core qualification that entails having an ability to design and also implement viable strategies in the face of adversity that maximizes the potential of each and every individual within an organization.
A dictionary may term the definition of leadership simply as guidance or direction, but that takes away from a true capacity to lead. Leadership requires a plethora of skills and foundations of knowledge and a desire to utilize these…… [Read More]. One the one hand, businesses, like individuals, strive to maintain their personal ethics and honesty in conducting business.
However, in order to succeed and remain in business, companies must be profitable. Although businesses often start out maintaining and promoting ethical and honest conduct, often times, the lure of greater potential profits becomes too strong and individuals and companies find themselves compromising their personal beliefs out of greed.
Corporate scandals like those involving the Savings and Loans, Michael Milken, Enron, Global Crossing, and WorldCom among others serve as invaluable reminders that corporations, like humans, are flawed and without proper oversight, may be susceptible to ethical failures.
This paper analyzes and examines whether honesty in business is more important than profit. Part II outlines and critiques arguments in favor of pursuing honesty over profit. Ethical Behaviors of Mattel in the Toy.

Throughout the work the musicians do not play their instruments. This is a challenging piece of music, especially when the composer described this work, with it absence of musical content, as his most important work. This creates a challenge to the listener, who may at first feel unsettled, as the work is an overt challenge to concepts of sound and music. The unsettled or uncomfortable feelings that may manifest can hinder an interpretation of the piece.
The audience sit may sit in an uncomfortable silence, as social convention dictates the audience should remain silent during a performance.

It does not recognize social responsibility. It is completely utilitarian and one-sided. The stakeholder theory considers the welfare and needs of customers, suppliers, owners and employees along with maximizing profit.
When called for, it believes that the interests of stockholders should be sacrificed in order to insure its survival. It developed from Immanuel Kant's philosophy, which respects the dignity and participation of all people. And the social contract theory is the most widely used business theory. It draws from the 18th-century philosophies of Thomas Hobbes and John Locke. Their philosophies argued that business should be dedicated and committed…… [Read More].

The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy states that virtue ethics is a "broad term for theories that emphasize the role of character and virtue in moral philosophy rather than either doing one's duty or acting in order to bring about good consequences.

Moral Message in Children's Literature. Moral Messages in Children's Literature I chose four children's classics: Charlotte's web by E. White, and other three children's fairy tales, two by Jakob and Wilhelm Grimm Cinderella and Snow white and the seven dwarfs and one by Charles Perrault Sleeping Beauty.
These were among my personal childhood favorites. Looking back on all four as an adult, I see many similarities, but also many differences, in these books' inherent moral messages. All have been positively reviewed e. Each contains many distinct moral messages, some plain, others less so.
Each also deals with situations that require moral decisions. Charlotte's web Charlotte's web is a story about eight-year-old Fern, who, while growing up on a farm, loves and nurtures a pet pig, Wilbur.

The first of these qualities to discuss is love. Love is a quality that no life can be without. The ability to build nurturing and loving relationships with another person is integral to our emotional fulfillment. It brings us the greatest joy we can possibly experience.

Similarly, I often spend time with friends, rather than time with my family.
My goals do not necessarily coincide with what matters to me. When I think of my goals, I generally think of owning things such as a car or house, going to school, and earning a specific amount of money.

In both cases, the defendants are entitled to the presumption of innocence only in court; but there is no such "presumption" in the intellectual "court" of one's mind.
A lawyer with integrity would refuse to represent any defendant he believed was probably guilty of horrendous crimes and simply let that defendant be represented by a court-appointed attorney who is obligated by law to represent any defendant who cannot afford a private attorney. If all criminal defense lawyers had high personal ethical standards, the Simpsons and Gottis of the world would find it impossible to retain any defense counsel other than those obligated by law to take their cases.

Hard work and perseverance can pull the poor out of poverty and make him rich. The problem is that this myth is only partially true. Analysis of the myth shows that accompanying conditions necessitate integrity and honesty. It is only the privileged few who can possess wealth within the framework of integrity and honesty.

Kenneth Lux adds a further dimension to these ideas. Rather than directly disagreeing with Smith, as was my first instinct to do, Lux analyzes the specific elements in what Smith says and identifies a specific oversight.
Firstly, Lux notes that Smith does not give due consideration to the paradigm of cheating. Cheating is self-serving, but does not serve the public good and is certainly not beneficial for the economy. Indeed, if Smith's assertions about self-servitude were to be believed, not cheating would be…… [Read More].

Iago in William Shakespeare's Play. Othello trusts him, so he lets his guard down. This allows Iago to see a weaker Othello and, as a result, shape his own personal image. This creates a conflict in the man that is already feeling out of place Iago simply feeds the fears Othello already has and adds to his disenchantment with a few lies of his own.
Through a fairly simple process, Iago changes how Othello perceives himself and Desdemona. In addition, he uses Cassio as nothing but as instrument. He convinces Cassio to fight for reinstatement, knowing this will incite anger in Othello. Iago uses reputations in the play well and completely to his own advantage. Othello watched Desdemona's reputation disintegrate right…… [Read More].
Ethical Treatment of Animals the. The main concern in virtue ethics becomes about a person's moral character. When people choose to develop their moral character, better virtues will be created, and thus there will be more people acting in virtuous ways in all aspects of their lives -- and this includes how they treat all animals.
One example to be considered when thinking about how a person with a strong sense of virtue might behave is to counter it with how a person with a strong sense of duty might behave. From a duty sense, if one were a livestock farmer, he or she might believe that his or her duty lies in what is best for the people because, after all, the job is about raising livestock for slaughter, which will then become food for people.
Therefore, the first duty would be to humans and the second duty to animals Panaman which may…… [Read More].

Managing Time Wisely To manage time wisely, we can create schedules for ourselves. Study time can be worked into anyone's schedule.

Othello loathes the idea of marriage which makes men believe that they have their wives faithful to them forever and also tricks them into believing that their "appetites" are also saved for their husbands alone. The word appetite here refers to sexual urges and need for love. Othello thinks that by betraying his trust, Desdemona has shown that her need for love was not met by Othello alone and then she needs to satisfy her urges by having an affair.
Othello promises himself that he would rather be a toad living in a dungeon than keep an unfaithful wife which could be used by others. This is indeed a serious charge against innocent Desdemona because she had been very faithful to her husband all along and had it not been for Iago, Othello would have never ever mistrusted her.
But Othello has now started doubting Desdemona to the extent that…… [Read More]. Ethics and Church in Today's. Their primary duty is that of guiding the spiritual and religious aspects of the lives of their community members. They should give the highest priority to their duties towards the community including church service, counseling and other ceremonial functions required by their profession.
As part of their professional and ethical duties, pastors are also required to show an interest in community development and increase their participation in community activities. This has become a necessity in modern culture because people expect institutions to take an interest and an active role in the community development efforts.
Institutions cannot expect to benefit from the resources of the society and not give back. This is why business organizations, universities and even political parties make community development a part of their organization's commitment to the society and the people they serve.

One, I had no reason to consult with others because as a take-home exam, I had a wealth of information and ample time available to me to conduct research at the library or on the Internet. Moreover, I have proven myself to be a hard-working and successful student, one who would not need the assistance of others on a straightforward exam question.
Second, if I had needed or wanted to consult with others I would hesitate to use my fellow classmates as a reliable resource. Rather, I would much prefer the more valuable input from my place of employment: Individual Project - Ethics Individual.
As the above scenarios illustrate, it is impossible to rely upon a single moral theory when developing a corporate code of ethics. This is because each individual brings his or her own personal perspective about ethics, so that each theory is biased by personal perspective. While Kohlberg's Model of Cognitive Development attempts to incorporate these differences, it fails to answer the question of whether or not individuals can judge the morality of someone's actions when that person comes from a different ethical and cultural background.
Therefore, it seems like the best thing a corporation can do is to consult the cultural norms of its stakeholders and try to fashion a corporate code that respects all of those norms. Such a code would focus on individual rights, utilitarianism, and justice. This experience really hurt me: I was not believed. When someone is not trusted, it can really lower their self-esteem because they are missing part of a relationship.
However, I have also experienced the other side of a lie: From this, I know that lying does not get you anywhere. Even when I tell the truth, my friend only occasionally believes what I say because he expects me to lie. I treasure honesty because it is important to be trusted and respected by your peers.
In my life, I have seen people, including my parents, lie to me, and I know it is hard to cope with since they were not being honest. Once, when I was a young boy, my parents made up a cruel lie about TV. They told me that TV made your brain rot, and I took it literally.
I stayed away from TV for most of my toddler years. Today, I know it was an obvious lie, but deep inside, I think differently about who my parents are under their skin.
In a situation like this, I now understand that a relationship cannot fully develop to its peak because this lack of honesty and truth can create a physical barrier between two people, one that may never be fixed. This knowledge has shaped my beliefs, and it makes me want to tell the truth so I do not do to people what has previously happened to me.
I understand that if you want friends and to be liked, you must be honest and trustworthy. I know that relationships are held up high from the building blocks of truth and honesty. Without these, relationships will tumble back down to the ground where they all started in the beginning.
