It is the responsibility of leadership to decide what culture is ethically acceptable and what is not. Good culture is promoted by shared ethical values. Ethical leadership recognizes the behavior which is inconsistent with the desired organization cultural values. The management of ethical behavior in corporate culture is also a practice of ethical leadership. A company’s leadership is also involved training to handle the unethical dilemmas.
Ethical decision making is important to counselors for a couple of reasons. The first, has to do with the core of what being a counselor is about. The American Counseling Association (2014) Code of Ethics says in code A.1., that the foremost feature of being a counselor is to “promote the welfare of clients” (p.4). Furthermore, it elaborates on this idea further when code A.4.a. mentions, to avoid precipitating harm to their clients, is a practitioner’s responsibility.
A Teachable Ethical Concept McMahone and Hardin-Baylor (2012) explore benefits of using a widely recognized a leadership style in organizations called servant leadership” to provide a systematic training approach that could help organizations to encourage ethical practices in their work environments. Keith (as cited in Spiro, 2011) believes that this style is about the focus on identifying and meeting needs of others in the organization, instead of the focusing self-interests and maximizing individual benefits of leaders like power, fame, and wealth. Spiro (2011) highlights that becoming a servant leader require developing the habits 1. build this style of leadership into the founding organizational values of. 2. recognizing your own strengths and weaknesses and their impact 3. Developing a flatter organizational structure 4. listening to the people around well.
Utilitarianism can be described as a theory of ethics because it tells good or bad and also right or wrong. But some of the key concepts of utilitarianism talk about the conduct of public life. This makes the theory political. Utilitarianism key idea is an action is morally right or wrong depending on their positive or negative effects. The only effects important actions are positive and negative
When practitioners are faced with ethical dilemmas, they must refer to the common base provided by the APA and proceed with the recommendations there in. If strict adherence to the principles and standards is forsaken, the practitioner can severely damage the perception of the doctor, the organization, and the science. Thus, the control of this adherence is entrusted only to the professional psychologist and great efforts must be taken to abide by the ethics within the Code of
Ethics are based on social norms and logical coherent philosophy. It’s about defining what is wrong and what is right and acting in right way to perform task. Ethical leadership is a good character of leader and holding a right values to influence their follower. Ethical leader act and makes decision ethically. Being under the law and code of conduct they need to perform.
It is our intent to focus on the practical application of ethics in decision making. We need to start by creating some clarifying distinctions to facilitate our purpose. Ethics in decision making have always impacted our choices for words and actions. Hence, according to me, Ethical theory framework would result in ethical action. Future conflict between a person's moral choice and an organization's ethical decisions are most easily addressed as someone seeks to join the organization.
Through their research, they identified a positive correlational relationship between laissez- faire leadership and role ambiguity and also with conflict among the team members-both of these outcomes were produced on the DecisionTech executive team. Ambiguity, as found in the research, is a direct connection to the third dysfunction described in the novel- “lack of commitment” (Lencioni, 2007.) Having uncertain roles on a team creates an environment that encourages apathy in goal completion. The lack of follow through is related to the individual intrinsic value that each team member has- when one’s role is not clearly defined and established, the member lacks role value on the team and therefor does not feel the need to commit to decisions made as a team
If followers shared a strong meaning of leadership, there would be less discretion for the leader to perform leadership in another way. Yet, if the followers have a diverse and weak understanding on leadership, leaders could perhaps be granted for a higher discretion to deploy their own leadership style (Alvesson, Blom & Sveningsson, 2017). Besides, the structural constraint on leadership also affect its significance. The structural constraints such as job position and burden of tedious work could hinder leaders being a ‘strategic planner’ as described in most of the management education or literatures. In Sveningsson and Alvesson’s (2016) study of managerial lives,
Two ethical theories in this course which I have chosen to discuss comprehensively are utilitarianism and Kantian moral theory. Utilitarianism is an ethical theory whose principal architects were Jeremy Bentham(1748-1832) and John Stuart Mill (1806-1873). It derives it 's name from utility, which means usefulness.The utilitarian says that an act is right (moral) if it is useful in “bringing about a desirable or good end." It has been more characteristically stated, however, as "Everyone should perform that act or follow that moral rule that will bring about the greatest good (or happiness) for everyone concerned. (Thiroux & Krasemann, 2009)The reason for mentioning both acting and following rules is that utilitarianism generally is found in two main forms: Act Utilitarian and Rule utilitarian.
