Create a six-slide, 12-minute presentation briefing a team on a potential ethical dilemma.
Questions to Consider
To deepen your understanding, you are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of the business community.
1. What concrete situations in your workplace might give rise to ethical dilemmas?
2. Does the professional code of conduct provide any relevant guidance for these cases?
3. Where else might you turn for reliable advice on handling each of these situations?
4. How can workplace colleagues productively resolve disagreements about such issues?
5. When might your own personal ethical convictions conflict with the advice of others?
Please remember that these are practical questions. The point is not to deal abstractly with philosophical issues, but rather to develop useful skills everyone can apply every day.
Imagine management at your future workplace tasks you with making a formal presentation to your team discussing a workplace ethical dilemma they might face. You consider an appropriate professional code of conduct, but only to the extent that it might offer useful guidance in this situation. The central task is to help everyone work together productively in resolving tricky issues.
For this assessment, fulfill the management task and create an visual presentation with a transcrip explanation for each slide that applies a professional code of ethics to common workplace situations. You may develop a series of annotated PowerPoint slides.
Include the following in your narrated visual presentation:
1. Apply a professional code of ethics to this workplace situation.
Assess the advantages and disadvantages of the selected professional code of ethics.
2. Explain methods for resolving ethical disagreements productively in the transcript.
3. Describe areas of one’s personal disagreement with professional standards.
Note: Include in your presentation slides or annotations a full APA-style citation of any quotation or paraphrase from the professional code or other sources you choose to employ.
1. Media presentation: Create a minimum of 6 slides with notes and transcript to ensure accessibility to everyone.
2. Resources: There is no minimum number of resources required; however, use your judgment to ensure your topic is thoroughly researched.
3. APA guidelines: Ensure resources and citations are formatted according to current APA style and format. When appropriate, use APA-formatted headings.
4. Font and font size: Use a font of appropriate size and weight for presentation, generally 24–28 points for headings and no smaller than 18 points for bullet-point text.
