Group of professionals generally sets these rules so that their professional peers see anyone who violations one of these rules of conducts are in violation of this rule as disapproval.

Last, the article will evaluate ethics in an academic setting, principally concerning academic integrity and the code of conduct. Trustworthiness, Ethical Stewardship in Leadership Comparing and Contrasting Approaches The problem is the investigation of the association linking leadership, ethical stewardship, and trustworthiness in a corporation.
