Ethical Learning Styles as a Team
The Ethical Awareness Inventory (EAI) is a learning tool to guide each individual to learn their ethical perspectives and styles. Character, Obligation, Results, and Equity are the four categories of ethical thought used in the EAI. There is a set of 24 questions that an individual must select what is most important to them, and what it less important. Through this process the Ethical Awareness Inventory it will determine what is most important to each person. This is an important tool to be used while working with teams or in the workforce because it will show what ethical values are important to us as well as others. Describe each team member’s ethical learning style from the EAI Jamie’s Results:
According to iWise (2014), Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) said, “Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids” (para. 1). Based on the EAI, Jamie was the most closely identified with the Character category, and least identified with Equity. The Ethical Awareness Inventory shows that some of her personal attributes may include; being compassionate, honorable, trustworthy, and genuine. She believes that people who are truly good will do good things (University of Phoenix, 2012). Some of the key concepts and values that are important to Jamie include; “fairness, wisdom, compassion, honesty, integrity, justice, respect for others ideals/values, personal excellence, commitment to virtue and decency, and equal goodwill towards others” (University of Phoenix, 2012). Olimpia’s Results:
In conclusion of the Ethical Awareness Inventory, Olimpia is a bottom line type person. The result showed combined scores for ethical profile to be equal. The final results of a project ETHICAL LEARNING STYLES AS A TEAM 3
are very important. Normally if there is a no later than date I tend to want it done and completed on time. Another important finding after completing the Ethical awareness, Olimpia does not make obligated promises that will not be accomplished. Character and credibility is what makes a strong team. In Criminal justice, team work is a need and requirement. One person decision normally spiral down to another person’s idea. Olimpia find team work as team building. Team work is a great way to expose weakness and strengths. In order for any team to work all must pull together in order to accomplish results. Everyone will bring different background experiences Wilsean’s Results:
According to the Ethical Awareness Inventory (EAI), it classifies me as a person who wants results with a least perspective of equity. I tend to use all the necessary time given to complete a project in order to find research and state every answer possible correctly. After further reading the results of my ethical profile I found that I tend to not rely on others for answers, but just in case I do rely on person for an answer, I will research and make sure to see if the given information is correct. Also states that I have the destination of taking leadership. Having leadership within the Criminal Justice can sometimes be a very stress position to uphold. Because of all the different opinions and views of how things should go and having thought of those who are against you and your command. But in order to have a leadership you need to be a strong person and believe in the plan you are trying to put in place. I believe “if you can’t bring anything to the table then you need to leave the kitchen” meaning if you can’t help me in what I am trying to achieve as a leader then you need to leave my team or agency.
