Individuals acting in a professional capacity take on an additional burden of ethical responsibility. For example, professional associations have codes of ethics that prescribe required behavior within the context of a professional practice such as medicine, law, accounting, or engineering. These written codes provide rules of conduct and standards of behavior based on the principles of Professional Ethics, which include:
|Openness; full disclosure|
|Due diligence / duty of care|
|Fidelity to professional responsibilities|
|Avoiding potential or apparent conflict of interest|
Even when not written into a code, principles of professional ethics are usually expected of people in business, employees, volunteers, elected representatives and so on.
Ethics are the principles, values and beliefs that define what is right and what is wrong behavior. Ethical challenges arise at all levels of leadership and in all types of organizations -- for-profit, nonprofit, government -- and involve a complex relationship between individual character and cultural influences. The Ethical Leadership webinar will explore what this means; and how the relationship between individual character and cultural influences plays out in the daily interactions in organizations.
