A hero can be defined as a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. Odysseus from Homer’s “The Odyssey” exemplifies this heroic definition. During his twenty year adventure fighting in the Trojan war and his ill-fated struggle to return home to his loving wife and son, he is given an opportunity to demonstrate this heroic character. What noble qualities does Odysseus display that prove his heroism? The first quality a hero must display is courage. Second, a hero must be intelligent and understand the workings of the world. Finally, a hero must be a leader, someone who can bring forth the best in others. On numerous occasions, Odysseus demonstrates his courage, intelligence and leadership

This semester at COSTAATT was one of the hardest I ever experience thus far, but I must admit that it was also one of those that encouraged me to really come out of my comfort zone and work harder than ever before. Leadership and Ethics opened my eyes to what leadership really means, I learned that people aren’t necessarily born leaders, that leadership (more importantly, good leadership) can be learned, practiced, and mastered. I also learned that I can be my biggest roadblock to my own success as well as the biggest positive influence. It do not matter the rank, position or status, anyone can lead anyone else. In this course I became more introspective about my current leadership roles and the tweaks I could make to communicate more effectively and be a “better” leader

Ethics starts where the law and regulations end, so individuals are confronting the situation where no regulation or law exists. Moral dilemmas happen around our daily life, in the office, community, and in our society. Within any workplace, the codes of conduct will shape the ethics of the organizations. For the individuals, the ethical dilemma will be a recurring challenge. These issues will involve areas of our interpersonal values, duty, and obligations. Ethical issues intertwine in our development, intimate life and our professional life and one must make a rational decision to balance both worlds. Some deciding factors on how one responds to ethical issues are usually influenced by their cultural upbringing, their community, and the professional arena they are confronted in (Boatright, 2013). In most situations, subtle differences guide the thinking on how to respond to the implication of what the actions are. They would rely on their gut instinct to bring in an ethical decision and not make a bad decision.
