Ethical Leadership, Second Edition

How do you resolve the ethical and moral dilemmas that arise in your life? Can you identify, articulate, and defend the ethical principles that govern and influence your ethical and moral decision-making? What ethical type are you?

The Ethical Type Indicator will enable you to discover the answers. This self-scoring personal assessment instrument measures the extent to which you prefer and use six ethical philosophies when confronted with an ethical dilemma.

The instrument consists of 42 statements reflective of one of six ethical theories. The tool is easy to complete and self-scoring takes only a few minutes.

There are no "right" or "wrong" answers. Respond with personal honesty and candor to:

Discover your primary ethical decision-making preference or ethical type
Assess the degree to which you are influenced by ethical principles
Become empowered to recognize, analyze and resolve future ethical dilemmas

Sample statements:

Do you regard written codes of conduct as helpful in resolving ethical dilemmas?
Do you believe the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few?
Are the thoughts, feelings and beliefs of friends an important consideration?

Also included:

Explanation of how to interpret and use the raw scores
