In Life and Business, Learning to Be Ethical

LOTS of New Year’s resolutions are being made — and no doubt ignored — at this time of year. But there’s one that’s probably not even on many lists and should be: Act more ethically.

Most people, if pressed, would acknowledge that they could use an ethical tuneup. Maybe last year they fudged some numbers at work. Dented a car and failed to leave a note. Remained silent when a friend made a racist joke.

The problem, research shows, is that how we think we’re going to act when faced with a moral decision and how we really do act are often vastly different.

Here’s just one of many examples from an experiment at Northeastern University: Subjects were told they should flip a coin to see who should do certain tasks. One task is long and laborious; the other is short and fun.

CONVERSATIONS

  1. I think it depends on someone’s current understanding of what ethical behavior is. I believe that while some people act in what others would say is unethically, the actor might not see it that way. With some open discussion and coaching, I believe that people can come to different and deeper understandings of what ethical behavior is. We are human beings on a journey and we can change over time how we define behaviors, including ethical behaviors. None of us is perfect and as many of us learn the “error of our ways” , we make corrections to do better in the future.
