Construct Personal Ethical Framework


Reflect on and construct your core ethical framework and code of ethics in terms of those values/beliefs that are patently self-evident and will not change with time, context, circumstance, or external/internal demands. Include the following:

  • From your viewpoint, explain why violating any of these ideals would be considered unethical.
  • Research the six major value types identified by Psychologist Gordon Allport. Identify and discuss into what value orientation your core ethical framework values/beliefs are based.
  • Given your core ethical framework, explain how you can expand your adaptive capacity. Support your response with additional research.

Support your framework and code with at least five scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.

Length: 5-7 pages, not including title and reference pages

Your paper should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards.

Professional organizations expect employees to embrace ethical values such as integrity, honesty, fidelity, responsibility, and self-discipline. The best leaders exhibit these ethical values to provide inspiration to their team and build trust in the workplace, for it is through leaders modeling desired behaviors that expectations are further affirmed.

A code of ethics is broader than simply a list of acceptable and unacceptable behaviors. The code of ethics should reflect your philosophy about life and draw a connection between your values and how these inform your actions and decisions. The code should also speak to one’s philosophy. As you review and reflect on this week’s materials, you should be able to develop a code of ethics that will likely guide you in dealing with both personal and professional ethical situations.
