Thank you Fabio for highlighting the available tools for Ethics... Actually, I am really convinced that everything starts with the individual, his perceptions, convictions, values, the way he deals with others and the way he likes others to deal with him and so on... Saying that, I would say that knowing yourself is the first step: knowing what's going right, what's going wrong, what could be done better... So the Self Assessment is the entry point, a suggestion, might be, adding some resources, and activities that could be done by the individual to fill in the gaps that he has identified during the self-assessment, what do you think?
Thanks for the update, Fabio!
Thank you for info.
Thanks for sharing this, I think the ethical mindset of an individual comes first and if that’s present, these tools are very helpful.
This is a pretty good toolkit. I could have used the bully checklist on a project earlier in the year.
good to see you are extending the resources available for people who are confronted with ethical problems.
Think there are many, and it may be worthwhile doing a survey to find which ones are most annoying, maybe per cultural area.
I could see situations of sexual harassment, bribery, estimation fraud as relevant, but there sure are more.
One concern about the bullying topic, it may apply to other topics too. Think we should try to avoid the attribution error, which means labeling the perpetrator with an evil personality treat (or vice versa). It is a human bias, a shortcut in our thinking which has a purpose but also leads to hate, conflict and violence. Nicely described by Kahneman.
Most conflicts do not exist because one side is inherently evil, but because a relationship deteriorated, trust and respect were lost and it spirals out of control. The cure is rather rebuilding mutual trust and mutual purpose, and exercising self control (as emotional intelligence suggests). A good book about this is 'crucial conversations'.
Think the real purpose of ethics is not to set rules and ensure compliance, but to create (self) awareness and provide tools to handle ethical problems. It is always in our own brains.
Thank you for sharing that, I wasn't aware of this resource. Also I'm happy to see that PMI included bulling in the ethics tool kit.
Thanks Fabio. Ethics tool kit is very helpful and found that self assessment is the best and a starter to the rest. A lot of what comes from it will help build the next set of tools.
I personally found project bullying very helpful as that is very common situation and often goes unattended but can cause the project to collapse.
A tool kit to understand cross-cultural ethical situations may be helpful. So example, for a situation at hand, given there could be a cultural sensitivity, how does one deal with it - knowing that the projects are often multi-cultural
Another tool idea would be to think of any support in the current Pandemic-driven "Online" world.
