In Module 1, we investigated the ethics theories that create the foundation for our discussions in these first two modules. In addition, we explored our personal values and the impact these can have on conflicts and decision making. Ethical dilemmas require a mindful approach to reasoning. As discussed by Lampe and Engleman-Lampe (2012), “ethical intention manifests into ethical action through mindfully living each moment.” (p. 101).
To prepare for your discussion, please study the following article for a full understanding of mindfulness.
Lampe, M., & Engleman-Lampe, C. (2012). Mindfulness-based business ethics education. Academy of Educational Leadership Journal, 16(3), 99-111.
Considering the concept of mindfulness from the article, ethics theories from Chapters 3 through 6 of our text, and your results from the Rokeach Value Survey, address the following in your discussion:
- How do your personal values interact with a mindful approach to ethical decision making?
- In light of your personal values, which ethics theory best fits your personal view of ethical decision making? Why?
- Evaluate how this information increases your understanding of your approach to ethical decision making and the impact this has on you when you’re faced with an ethical dilemma.
