My primer concern is the well-being of my whole community. Assuring the community's welling is the best way to assure that individual. Paragraph 4 (optional) Any additional actions…. Paragraph 5 Conclusion—restate your thesis and summarize key points In conclusion, my core values are about the well-being of my community and the fairness of individuals. With my ethical lenses, reputation and relationship, I believe my goals will be
My personal ethics lens includes my personal actions and behaviors, my core values, and responsibilities. My personal preferred lens is the results lens and the reputation lens. I sensibly listen to my intuition to determine the best for everyone and the character traits and ethic beliefs that will best suit my fellow classmates. I am sometimes content with too little and have unrealistic role expectations, relying too much on the virtues related to someone’s role, absent to the fact that others can fail regardless of their part in the project. However, I am very self-reliant and posses accountability.
It says that my gift is compassion and that is true because I am compassionate about the things I want and am trying to accomplish in life and I show compassion towards others and their problems. The Ethical Lens said that I define an ethical person as one with sound character traits and habits of thoughtful reflection. It also said that I believe that those who demonstrate strong leadership in their roles and who encourage others to do the same exemplify ethical behavior. I would have to agree with this assessment because I definitely expect others to display this type of ethical behavior. Though I know this is expected of people, I am however, not nieve to how people can really be.
Good personal ethics are very important for me to have because it allows me to deal fairly with people in any situation and in any aspect of life. I believe good personal ethics are very important for everyone to have although some may not think so. My Ethical Lens Inventory results allow me to identify what my individual values are and what my challenges and strengths are. The inventory allows me to see ethical issues clearly and being aware of my priorities and values helps me to understand how I deal with ethical issues that may arise in daily life. My personal preferred lens is the Equality/Rationality in the Relationship lens.
People tend to say they lie because the truth hurts but really it is what it is “The Truth”. I realize that by being honest and telling the truth it gives me peace of mind that I am doing the right thing. These strengths help me in my day-to-day life by allowing me to love and be loved, treat people the way I want to be treated, helping others, and being honest regardless of the outcome. All these are great qualities that employers look for in an employee. Employers want people that are good team players, customer oriented and honest.
By working with each other and completing their duty’s they are gaining trust, while becoming very loyal towards each other. Duty is to fulfill your obligations. Not just completing your work at the minimum standard but to always do your best. Taking the initiative to do things is a great example of fulfilling your duties. Completing your duty also prevents illegal orders because leaders have no choice but to do what is right.
The second guideline is accepting and confirms others. Everyone wants to feel needed, so we need to be accepting. Sometimes we disagree with others and don’t like certain things they do. Being honest with others is important because we expect real friends to be sources of honest feedback, even if it isn’t always pleasant to hear. For a relationship to work, the people in it must feel confirmed.
It is said that virtue ethics measures a person by his or her character and moral standing within a community in determination of his or her good. With utilitarianism, a person is a good and moral person when his actions benefit the needs of the community over personal needs. Another words, you serve everyone else around you before you even think of helping yourself. Being unselfish is being utilitarianism. The same thing can be said about deontology, a person is good and moral when his choice of action within a community is inherently moral and good or they do the right thing.
REGARDLESS OF THE SITUATION THE UTMOST RESPECT FOR HUMAN DECORUM SHOULD BE UPHELD AT ALL TIMES. EVERY INDIVIDUAL HAS A FUNDAMENTAL VALUE THAT HE OR SHE IS ENTITLED TO. SO IF THERE IS A SET OF POLICIES OR SOCIETAL TRADITIONS FOCUSED ON WHAT IS BEST FOR THE COMMUNITY BUT REPUDIATES PROSPECTS IN WHICH HE OR SHE IS ENTITLED AS AN INDIVIDUAL IT IS NOT ETHICAL. ALTHOUGH PROFESSIONAL WORK DOES NOT NECESSARILY REQUIRE THAT INDIVIDUALS GIVE UP THEIR PERSONAL ETHICS, IT OFTEN DOES MEAN THAT THEY HAVE TO ADOPT ADDITIONAL STANDARDS (RUGGIERO, 2008). PROFESSIONAL ETHICS INCLUDE IMPARTIALITY, CONFIDENTIALITY, DISCLOSURE, AND FIDELITY TO PROFESSIONALS.
Another supporting argument of Ethical Egoism is that we always do what we most want to do. Also we do what makes us feel good. In addition, we do things for others to ultimately benefit ourselves. Lastly, it is better to look out for oneself and not interfere with others lives, which sometimes can cause robbery of other’s dignity and self respect. There also are arguments against Ethical Egoism.
