The tool is very helpful, for sure. A true leader is responsible for the set of ethics governing the behavior of the team.
The secret is in promoting openness, while preserving respect, honestry and fairness.
Each of us is subject to multiple guardrails when it comes to ethics. The company we work for, the industry we work in, and the associations we are part of will all have their own requirements.
But the most important is our own value system.
Ideally, that is well aligned to the others so that when we are put in a situation which might result in an ethical violation our instincts will serve us right.
My approach has been to ask myself two questions:
1. Would I be able to look at myself in the mirror without flinching after making a decision?
2. Would I feel worried about sharing my thought process and decision with my peers in the profession?
Kiron, thanks for your comment, you shared two pillars for excellent decision-making!
Do you use any framework to support your thought process? I personally like how the EDMF is structured (without being a strict stepwise process)
Fabio, I liked the correlation between HP and Real-world decision making and your blog post is clear and concise - o good read.
Any decision I take has to consider the ethical approach. As Kiron has pointed out. I need to live with ME every second of every day (at least my partner gets a break!). If my decision doesn't sit with my ethical values, how can I justify it personally and professionally.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Karl!
We always need to be on alert when taking our decisions, not to oversight any choices or aspects... we may regret it!
As you wrote, we need to live with US every second
