Ethical Dilemmas

Ethical Dilemmas

Introduction and Alignment

As you saw in the last workshop, leaders cast light when they master the ethical challenges of leadership. They cast shadows when they abuse power, hoard privileges, mismanage information, act inconsistently, misplace or betray loyalties, or fail to assume responsibilities. This assignment will help you examine your perceptions regarding the ethical dilemmas faced by leaders and examine some light-casting qualities depicted by ethical leaders.

Upon completion of this assignment, you should be able to:

  • Identify ethical leadership dilemmas that effect managerial decision making.


  • Bible
  • Textbook: Meeting the Ethical Challenges of Leadership
  • Textbook: Essentials of Business Ethics
  • File: Chapter 3.ppt

Background Information

In 2 Peter 1:5-7, you get an in-depth list of indicators of Christian character. These indicators include diligence, moral excellence, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness, and love. Looking at the list in context will provide a much different perspective, so make sure to do so by reading the 2 Peter verses in your Bible.

Surely you have exhibited many of those indicators at some point, but are you demonstrating them regularly, in all instances, to all people? This exercise will show that many ethical dilemmas arise from character failures in leadership.


  1. Download and review the PowerPoint presentation, Chapter 3.ppt.
  2. Review Chapter 1 and read Chapter 3 of Meeting the Ethical Challenges of Leadership and Chapter 1 of Essentials of Business Ethics. As you read, think about any ethical challenges you may have had in your past.
  3. Using the resources of the Off Campus Library Service (OCLS), conduct a search for three articles discussing ethical dilemmas faced by leaders. These dilemmas may be the result of leadership traits or they may arise from a conflict in values (e.g., loyalty to employees versus responsibility to protect the environment).
    1. At least two of these articles must be from peer-reviewed sources.
    2. Each article must deal with a different leader ethical dilemma.
  4. Write a 600- to 800-word research paper in which you:
    1. Identify the types of ethical challenges discussed in the three articles. Determine which type of shadow, as described in Chapter 1 of Meeting the Ethical Challenges of Leadership, best describes each ethical challenge. Provide a detailed evaluation that demonstrates clear, insightful critical thinking.
    2. Evaluate the ethical challenges of the three articles using the five biblical business ethics principles discussed in this workshop. Which biblical principle, if any, does each ethical challenge violate? Provide a detailed evaluation that demonstrates clear, insightful critical thinking.
  5. Use proper spelling, grammar, and APA formatting for your research paper. (Note: cover pages, academic sources, reference pages, etc. do not count towards the word length requirement in your paper.)
  6. When you have completed your assignment, save a copy for yourself and submit a copy to your instructor using the Dropbox by the end of the workshop (Turnitin will be enabled).
You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.
