leadership or the ethical consequences of their decisions. In life or death situations, people rarely think about leadership or the ethical consequences of their decisions, such as whether the ethics of self-interest are as valid as the ethics of altruism, or how context affects our decision making. While most of the decisions we make at work do not have life/death implications, we are often faced with unexpected ethical dilemmas. Do you have a contingency plan to deal with them? These are the concepts you will consider with your peers in this discussion.To complete this discussion, first read Parable of the Sadhu; then, for your initial post, address the following:
- Explain whether you think McCoy did anything wrong. If so, what and why? If not, defend your argument.
- Consider what can be said in McCoy’s defense. Describe how you could construct a defense of his actions and argue he either did the right thing or at least did nothing bad?
- If this had been on a busy city sidewalk instead of on the top of the mountain, do you think McCoy’s decisions would be different? Why or why not?
- How would leadership have made a difference in this situation?
