Leaders in the public sector are expected to maintain a level of morality and integrity which serves the interests of society, while at the same time demonstrates personal responsibility, diplomacy, and truthfulness. Therefore, when attempting to arrive at appropriate ethical decisions, public administrators must possess the capacity to exercise moral imagination. However, moral imagination is not enough. Responsible administration in the public sector also requires acting based on the “right”
Some of the downfalls during the political era was the disorganization and inability to supervise officers. This gave rise to political corruption due to the officer’s intimacy with the community and the ability to be bribed for non-enforcement of
Each individual faces a situation in professional or personal life, where they are required to make an ethical decision. This type of decision making requires a person to make a personal judgment about a matter that affects lives of other people. For Example, to hire or fire a person based on race, ethnicity, or religion would be an unethical decision. In this paper will be discussed the ethical values of Shelina Virani, how her values align with the values of Kudler Fine Foods, and how these values would effect her performance as a manager at Kudler Fine Food.
Setting higher standards for those persons in positions of authority and power over the public establishes a prescribed set of standards for which the public expects to be upheld if authorities are to successfully exude their power and authority over the people. Williams and Arrigo state “Along with power comes an increased responsibility to use it in appropriate ways” (2012). As can be seen in current events, when officials abuse the authority by excessive use of force, kickbacks, or unethical or immoral behavior, the public loses trust and respect for the system as a whole, not just for the individual or individuals in question. An expectation of increased morality and value is expected in persons holding positions where the enforcement of laws, societal values and morals are rendered. Williams and Arrigo further state “…with the presence of increased power, discretion, and thus opportunity, the need for morality increases considerably”
The question of ethical behavior is an age-old conundrum. The prevailing issue with ethics is that it is extremely difficult to measure. A person’s moral fabric is largely based on their particular personality traits, as well as, their psychological state and environmental influences. Many believe that ethics are tied to a person’s conscience, and that good morals are often facilitated by a strong religious background. Furthermore, a person’s moral development can be linked to their economic situation and cultural differences. Interestingly, even while examining the status of one’s moral code is challenging; everyone seems to have their own unique array of ethics.
In this article, ‘How to Make Unethical Decisions,’ I read about how individuals take care of issues and decide.

6% of Americans say that the moral and ethical decline is the country’s biggest issue. On the other hand, this means that the other 94% think that other, bigger obstacles, are more important.

The case of moral luck was introduced by Williams Bernard and developed by Thomas Nagel in their articles respectively. Both raised the question whether luck can influence the judgment of morality. In this essay, the definition of moral luck and four kinds of moral luck by Williams and Nagel will be discussed through several case examples, and then followed with some arguments from Judith Andre, Donna Dickenson and David Enoch and Andrei Marmor who disagree with the concept of moral luck.
“The choices leaders make and how they respond in a given circumstance are informed and directed by their ethics”(Northouse, Peter G. 2016. P.330). Sometimes, taking the “right” decision goes against the morals and ethical principles of a leader, therefore, it is important for a leader to act with transparency and
The primary cause of the problem faced by officials and citizens is that ethical matters are not clear to the citizens. Most people abide by the ethnic issues in a succession of generations. Although many people do not understand the ethnic concerns and issues they would obey them fully. The misunderstanding of the racial issues poses a significant problem to the officials. If the ethnic issues were made clearer, the chances are that there would be no problem for counsels and officials in handling critical ethnic issues. The construction of policy proposals would become a grave concern in regions where communities maintain complicated ethical considerations. The construction of important ideas in the regions dominated by strong ethical beliefs
The Victorian Era was that of high moral intellect. During this time in history society looked upon its self as having the right to judge anything and anyone who did not share this outlook as being irrevocably reprehensible. The term "Victorian morality" has described any values that marry sexual restraint, a low tolerance for crime and a strict social code of conduct. The Victorian era is regarded by historians as a time of many contradictions, between the child labor, and prostitution, yet high society had the constant outward appearance of dignity and restraint. In the novel The Picture of Dorian Gray,
Since working in the criminal justice system will involve individuals having to constantly make ethical decisions, the character of one should start to matter in early adulthood. Specifically, this can be measured as after high school or at the age of 17. Prior to the age of 17, many individuals may still be developing their identities and making choices that are not truly reflective of who they are. As one starts to approach adulthood, however, the choices and characteristics of one may become more concrete and stable. In addition, it is during these crucial moments in development that one’s perceptions and actions in life speak the most about a person. Early adulthood is when moral character should matter, as this also the time when
