The required textbook chapters and the Ethics: What is right? (Links to an external site.) video provide a number of definitions for the term ethics and multiple theories about moral conduct (Warmerdam & Garcia, 2004). Based upon your own professional experience, create your own, personal working definition of ethics, and explain the significance that ethics have in your daily life (i.e., work and/or life outside of work). Your definition should include the consequences you have observed or experienced for violations of your fundamental definition of ethics (i.e., consequences to you or to others).
When you examine and create your own personal definition of ethics, ponder the many, varying theories about ethics. How does your personal ethical theory match or draw from established codifications of moral conduct? Are ethics situational? Why or why not?
