Option #1: Personal Code of Moral Principles
Describe your own personal code of moral principles and values. How were these principles and values formed? Are these values and principles consistent with those of your current organization (the values and behaviors present within the organization) or community in which you interact? If a conflict between your personal values and these external larger groupâ€™s values is present, what actions could you take to respect these conflicting values given that peopleâ€™s values include diverse perspectives? Consider gender, generation/age, and culture in your analysis. Remember, this is a confidential essay. Be honest. Personal values and principles may not coincide with those of others, religious organizations, or professional organizations.
Some values could include being honest (always tell the truth), never take an action that harms someone else, treat people like you would like to be treated, always contribute at the highest level possible, family comes first, people come first, at work the organization comes first, and always show up early for work. Consider your own value system. Ask yourself why you think or behave in certain ways, or why someone elseâ€™s behavior angers you and creates a strong reaction within you. How might your reactions and your behaviors conflict with what values that you believe are important?
