The development of a code of ethics should be an inclusive and consultative dialogue/ process between all key stakeholders (i.e. leadership team, clients, suppliers, communities and employees) to determine how each interprets ethics and morality in order to find the closest applicable understanding that can be agreed on by most and understood by all concerned parties. Leadership alignment and agreement to remain consistent and credible role models of the type of ethical behaviour the organisation expects from all stakeholders. To understand the impact of leadership on the overall effectives of ethics training in an organisation, Smit, P.J., Cronje G.J., Brevis, T. and Vrba, M.J. (2011) argue that: The first and most important requirement for fostering a culture of good ethics in an organisation is leading by example…the chief executive officer and senior managers need to be openly and strongly committed to ethical conduct and should provide constant leadership in reinforcing ethical values in the organisation.

One of those most challenging areas I have experience during my current placement is ethical decision-making. We studied many possible scenarios during our Values, Ethics and Professional Issues class, and discussed the various types of decision-making models to help guide us when having to make difficult decisions. While the class was invaluable, because it helped me identify my own biases, and also shed light on how I have made decisions in the past and how I can possibly make decisions in the future, I knew that having to make real-life decisions would not be so cut and dry. This placement has been challenging for me, because my ongoing assignment with one of my supervisors requires constant ethical decision-making, sometimes even in the
To what extent should personal religious beliefs impact our decisions about business ethics Personal religious beliefs should impact every business decision. As a believer in Christ, our lives are a testimony of Christ; therefore, as Paul instructs, “Whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus” (Col. 3:17 ESV). This instruction necessitates that the believer considers biblical principles in every business decision.
The Ethical Warrior is a concept that us as Marines try to be by our core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment.

Our enemies are ethical warriors due to having the same core values as Honor, Courage and Commitment.
Ethics plays an integral role in promoting the well being of individuals in the society. Early scholars, though with different perceptions of the idea, emphasized the need for an ethical based community or society. Each community has various ethical guidelines, which its members are supported to follow. The same actually applies for organizations, whether public or privately owned. This demonstrates that the idea of ethics is homogeneous and that provides the optimum level where behavior, whether individual or institutional, can be regarded as right and not in violation of societal norms or organizational expectations.
This idea contradicts the ‘Christ against Business’ concept as it argues for a Christian to be involved in business in order to positively influence those around them. Third, ‘Christ above Business’ offers that business needs Christians in order to maintain ethics and integrity. In this view, it is the responsibility of the Christian leader to keep Christian ethics at the forefront of the business model, allowing Christians to succeed in business while aiding in establishing a culture of honesty and integrity. The ‘Christ and Business in Paradox’ paradigm sees the relationship between Christians and Business as one that requires compromises in order to overcome the struggles that surface between the different world views.

Virtue ethics started drawing attention since the modern ethics exposed its limitation and reconsideration about the priority was needed. Contemporary ethics focus on “What we should do”, instead of “What kind of person we should do”.
