My Life Experience
When becoming a leader or a manager, it does make a different when it comes into play. I have found that it is very important that personal value plays a role in every leader’s success. For any leader or manager, he/she should apply these personal values and share this information within the organizations that they work for and as well as for the employees that are working for them. By taking the Ethic Awareness Inventory Assessment to see how well I do to realize my own ethical standpoint and compare the result with the inventory analysis. To my surprise, I scored high in the obligation and the results profiles.
It stated real clearly that ethical decision-making involves three components awareness, articulation, and application (Ethics Awareness Inventory, 2006). Upon the evaluation of this test, it stated that an individual with equal high scores in both of these areas can be experiencing some internal conflict with the leader’s own feelings of moral obligations to employees, although the leader was attempting to accomplish specific results for a any group or organization (Ethics Awareness Inventory, 2006). After learning more about this assessment and its results, I can see how this is appropriate assessment for me.
When I used to work, I always gave it my best all because I had a group of students (mental retarded) depending on me. I made sure I was not only right, however I would be there to assist them who needed it. After reviewing the strategic plan that Kudler Fine Foods has developed for a while, I can tell that they do believe in working hard, increasing customer service, a mixed diverse group of employees, and personal relations with different communities in the area. In order for a business to be successful, these are important what they do.
I believe that my personal value assessment result would fit right in with becoming a manager at Kudler Fine Foods, and would assist in making the business become so successful by having the right planning in place. Ethics is an important essential fact within the technical world. It offers some valuable information regardless to ethical point of view which identify my values and the values of Kudler Fine foods and how it would affect my role as a manager if I had worked at Kudler Fine Foods. What my understanding is that ethics plays a part that involves employees’ feelings, thoughts and the benefits.
I would try to do my best and achieve the most positive outcome in any given situation. “The Williams Instuition Ethic Awareness Inventory explained differert ethical beliefs in their study. It is based on charater, obligation, equity and result. In this inventory, my personal opinion is closer to result than equity. Based on its report, I am more focused on the result and the consquesences of my actions, but honestly I do believe that conduct is a way to promoting excellent for many employees. The Williams Institute for Ethics and Management had stated that: You believe that we each have a moral right to experience the “good life.
One way to measure how good life really is would be to determine how satisfied the majority of the people in our society seem to be. If most people are unhappy, something is morally wrong and needs to be fixed. Therefore, your approach to ethics is likely to focus on what could be done to improve the well being of the greatest numbers of persons. ” (The Williams Instuitie for Ethics and Management, 2008) I am so extremely exciting to realie my own ethical because values and ethics combined are the most important characteristic of a person.
They both basically define who we are and what we believe in. There is a list of factors that determine both our value and ethics. I will name a few and they are: Religion, and culture and other factors that affect our beliefs. It is definitely a fact that value and ethics can bump heads with many people from different background who have a different point of view and beliefs whether it is right or wrong. It doesn’t means that it is not a good foundation to practicing good ethics and morals.
How we can develop values and ethics, begins from the time we are born into this world and it all begins with the people who play a major influences in our daily life. Parents, siblings, best friends, teachers and mentors are a huge part of our lives as we are growing up . They all played an important part influenicing our thoughts and beliefs. We develop all kind of values and ethics through past experiences whether it is right or what is wrong. Values and ethics are one of the most important characteristic of person. They basically define who we are and what we believe.
There are many factors that determine our values and ethics. Religion and culture play a part in our lives and there are many other factors that affect our beliefs. Many times are values and ethics can clash with different people who hold different views and beliefs. This doesn’t mean our values or ethics are wrong it just means we think differently than others. Most people have a good sense of ethics and values. Knowing between right and wrong is a good foundation to practicing good ethics and morals. As we develop many values and ethics through past experiences, it can be either a positive and/or negative experience.
It depends how we use our thoughts and beliefs when making decisions and judgements. Culture has a biggest influence in both of our values and ethics. Many countries have different beliefs and thoughts of what is or not socially accepted. They have been around for years and their thoughts and beliefs could be just as old if we go way back in history. My personal values experience is very strong and I feel that I developed values and ethics as a young girl. My mother and my grandmother taught me what is right and what is wrong, so that I would not get punished.
I remember doing something wrong by telling a lie, but I ended up getting punished anyway. I am so glad that I was raised by two most important intelligent women who had strong morals and high standards. These were very important to learn because they did not like for me to keep lying, stealing or cheating to get punished and have bad luck. When you do wrong, you will be accountable for your actions if you did these things. So that is why they taught and expected me to be honest show respect to others and treat them the way you wanted to be treated.
I mean I love this golden rule. That one thing that I live by is live life like a golden. Learning and comparing the results from the Williams institute for Ethics Awareness Inventory along with Kudler Fine Foods as a make-believe manager, does make me want to do a better job at planning a appropriate strategic plan for the team and organization to become a successful business. It is all about having a good foundation block throughtout the oraganiation and exchange ideas and views by communicating and working together as a team.
