Assignment: Turnitin-Ethical Dilemmas
As you saw in the last workshop, leaders cast light when they master the ethical challenges of leadership. They cast shadows when they abuse power, hoard privileges, mismanage information, act inconsistently, misplace or betray loyalties, or fail to assume responsibilities. This assignment will help you examine your perceptions regarding the ethical dilemmas faced by leaders and examine some light-casting qualities depicted by ethical leaders.
Upon successful completion of this assignment, you will be able to:
- Identify legal and ethical leadership dilemmas that effect managerial decision making.
- Distinguish leadership actions that cast light from those that cast shadows.
- Examine the guidelines offered by the world and the Bible for ethical living.
- Distinguish behavior accepted by those serving the world from behavior by those serving Christ.
