Lessons in Ethics

Ethics is something I have had to try to understand over and over the years. I come from a culture where organisations acclaim values doesn’t match their ethical standards.

At the root of every high or low ethical standard in an organisation lies the leadership of such an organisation and also at the root of that leadership is the individual. Looking back at some organisations in my country and wondering what could have been the common cause of unethical behaviours that often exited organisations out of business and competition. But from what I have learnt so far in my leadership module this week, I could see the role a leader play in shaping an organisational ethics and this starts from the ethical stance of the leader as a person. I have learnt that if as an individual if we don’t stand for something, we would fall for anything and this all goes back to our values. If we don’t figure it out and stand for something as an individual then when we becomes leaders it’s going to be more difficult because the pressure to succumb would be higher. Our ability to translate our values into our ethics and act in line with them would determine the way we conduct the affairs in our lives which at the end of the day would also determine the course we are going to take on as a leaders of teams and organisation.
