Organizational Ethics asked students to explore their own worldviews and to evaluate how those worldviews influenced our social, political, professional, and personal lives. This course challenged me to explore leadership as it relates to moral choices and to examine the influence of my own worldview on the moral decisions I make as a leader. In this course we explored the origin of ethics, including the differing views of C. S. Lewis and Sigmund Freud. We explored our own ethical foundations and how we use our ethical worldviews to influence our decisions and actions. The discussed the role of ethics in leadership, explored different theories of ethics, and used these theories to examine ethical challenges in our workplaces and lives.
