Being a true leader is never easy. Even with hundreds of leadership resources, being in a management role can be complicated. Add the concept of ethics into the equation and leadership is risen to the next level.

Leadership is challenging; from an emotionally driven decision to purely profit oriented ones, leaders today face the dilemma of finding the right balance. Ethical leadership means more than acting ethically on the surface. It involves business decision making and strategic direction that doesn’t put individuals and businesses in a compromise with ethical standards.

Will there ever be an answer for unethical behavior? The world is comprised of many cultures, religions, and beliefs. This diversity is what makes defining ethics and instilling ethical conduct in the workplace a difficult task. If the business world is going to advance the cause towards ethics, individuals must understand the traits and skills that an ethical leader should exhibit.

The distinguishing between traits and skills seems important because we all know that person who just seems to be a good leader but we don't know why, and this helps define some of the reasons why and what can be done in our own paths to become better leaders. Also, I appreciated the stress on a leader's obligation to be humble in ways like listening to others, knowing when to step aside, etc.

Presenter made this ethics course enjoyable and relatable. Examples and references to personal experiences conjured up similar scenarios from my own life. I think this course would be great for anyone who is trying to advance and may be struggling to understand why they're being passed over. This will foster some reflection and perhaps self-growth if you see yourself in the mirror!

This was a great course and I liked the way the instructor provided examples of ethical behavior. Also that she emphasized trying to understand the other person's point of view, ie during covid understanding that some people felt vaccination requirements were an infringement on civil liberties. It's always good to try to understand views of others that differ from your own.

Ethical conduct arises from both inherent traits and learned behavior, but neither are due to or can be cajoled from taking CPE courses. I think American society was more ethical before the 1960s. The reasons why would be an interesting topic of academic study. Here's some info: DOI:10.13140/RG.2.2.20314.70081

Ethics is a branch of philosophy that deals with moral principles and values, guiding human behavior and decision-making. It explores questions about what is right or wrong, good or bad, and how individuals and societies ought to act
