University of Phoenix Digital Footprint Adrienne Ferrara

With freedom comes responsibility. When we first began sending messages through cyberspace, few anticipated that the digital footprint we were creating would follow us for a lifetime. Posts on Facebook that people make in junior high and high school impact hiring decisions when they are 30.
Consider the following questions.
Question 1: Which of the perspectives of the four members of the G-BioSport Ethics Committee did you find most persuasive as you consider how you will manage your own digital footprint? Which was lease persuasive? Why?
- I found that Mark Tatum was the most persuasive. He values truthfulness and honesty and values the right of each individual to think about how they will follow their conscience and I think if everyone in the community valued the same, it would make the community a better place. In my opinion the least persuasive was Alex Smith. He states that he wants to make sure that the choices we make as a community should be good for everyone but I think as individuals, we all have our opinions on what we would all consider as “good.”
Question 2: Did the perspective you found persuasive mirror your result from the Ethical Lens Inventory? Where did you see similarities and differences?
- I believe the perspective I found most persuasive mirrors my result from the Ethical Lens Inventory. We both shared the same Rights/Responsibilities Lens. We both value truthfulness and honesty. From the e-mail, I don’t think there are any differences because I felt that if I were in the position to write an e-mail, I would say the same exact thing.

...Ethical Lens Inventory RaJonne Mitchell ETH/316 10/12/2012 S. Edington In talking to a friend, how would you describe your ethical perspective as identified by the Ethical Lens Inventory, including your blind spot, strengths, weaknesses, and values? After reviewing my results for the ethical lens, I do agree with what I found. My core values stated that my concern is protecting individual rights, and that I believe this is the best way to assure that everyone in the community is treated fairly, which it true. I do tend to look at the bigger picture than just the individual numbers. My blind spot says that I am content with little too good, which is the correct way to explain my personality. I tend to leave problems unresolved when I become satisfied with my own needs, leaving others to deal with their own situation however they like. What does the term personal ethics mean to you? Personal ethics to me is like an imaginary line of right and wrong. It varies depending on the situation, but one should always handle each situation as its own. The saying “do onto other as you would want other to do onto you” is a great slogan for my beliefs in personal ethics, always place yourself in the next persons shoes. Don’t jump to conclusions, figure out what is best, and think about what is the right (legal) thing to do. How might your personal ethics help you to determine a course of action in a situation? Personal ethics will help you come to a more......

Personal Lens

...today may believe exceptional personal ethics are not always essential in the workplace, or an education setting; however, people do need ethics to maintain a strong and successful workplace or educational setting. The choices we make should be driven by our own ethics. I define ethics as one who does right in any given situation. I have always been the one to take the good with the bad. My personal preferred ethical lens has shown me that I adapt to any situation. I found that I do not have a set ethical lens, but instead am on the middle of being able to adapt to all four lenses. Ethically I view autonomy and equality equally along with rationality and sensibility equally. My lens taught me that because I am able to adapt to each that I do not have a blind spot, but instead an ethical risk. Being that I am so open to everyone’s point of view, I run the risk of being too scared to take action in the situation. At times I have to remember that not everyone has the same ethics as me and I should not try to make everyone’s ethical point of view match mine. We all have our strengths and weaknesses, based on what I have learned from the Ethical Lens Inventory I found that one of my strengths is my gift of balance. Because I see the benefits of each lens, I make decisions based on all four. I believe in using self-knowledge and compassion while making strong decisions and helping people in a beneficial manner. My personal ethics lens shows that I have two major weaknesses....

Ethical Lens Report

...Ethical Lens Report I was pleasantly surprised to find that after completing the ethical lens inventory it really did tell a lot about who I am and how I make decisions based off of my ethical viewpoints. There were many eerily similar things that I do in real life that matched what the print out said about my ethics. First off my preferred lens is the “Rights and Responsibility Lens” which says that I am a rational person and care about others view points and that each person follows a set or universal rules (autonomy). This lens fits me to a T, I find that I do try and rationalize many things in my life to either determine their validity or to exonerate it. I value autonomy over equality. This states that I would rather care more for individual rights. I moderately prefer rationality over sensibility I would rather find the reasoning in a situation than to follow others to an unknown path. My values Temperance, I know who I am and can act with integrity. I achieve my duties through individual balance. I personally do well at the supervisor position at work and my personal life I like to be in charge and take control of situations I do not like to follow. I believe that motive justifies method which is my blind spot. I see this is my day to day life. I think that just because I believe in the rules and follow them that everyone does the same. Which causes me disappointment, I try and prove my points to others and have a good mind set not to hurt others in the process...

Ethical Lens

...Ethical Lens Inventory Reflection In life, individuals use their reasoning skills, which are based on values and perspectives, in determining their choices, their ethical decisions. The Ethical Lens Inventory is an excellent personal evaluation tool designed to help us understand and teach us to be aware of how we prioritize our ethical values, as well as to decrease the likelihood of unnecessary conflict, and to encourage wise ethical decisions. Personally, I identified specific characteristics I need to employ and others that require improvement. My preferred lens is Rights, Responsibility, and Relationship. This means I utilize my reasoning abilities to establish universal rules each person should follow. I believe in processes that ensure impartiality and justness for everyone. My core values revolve around autonomy, equality, and rationality. Interdependence is the goal, and we should harmonize the rights of individuals for the good of the community. In this type of core value, a person prioritizes the value of rationality over sensibility. My classic values are temperance and justice. I commend personal restraint in the desires for pleasure, when there are duties to be addressed. “I am fair and responsible,” is my motto. I believe that humans should value the fair system that all men are created equal in order to maintain an ethical result. Ethical behavior is satisfying your duties and doing the right thing, as a fully responsible adult. I use reason......

Ethical Lens

...Ethical Lens Inventory Ethical Lens Inventory After completing the Ethical Lens Inventory, my personal preferred lens is Rights and Responsibility and Relationship Lens. It states that I use my reasoning skills to determine both the universal rules that each person should follow and the processes that will assure fairness and justice for all in the community. How I might use my personal ethics to determine a course of action, is by making the right choices so I won’t have to suffer bad consequences. For instance, I should dedicate a certain amount of time to homework and/or studying to pass a class, if not I would have to take the class all over again, which I would not enjoy seeing myself go through that. My blind spot is the belief that motive justifies method or Overconfidence in process; because I believe that a consistent process results in a just outcome for all. This is basically telling me that I don’t care about how others complete their tasks and that I am really only focused on getting the task completed in a certain way. I believe my strength is Seeing Clearly, basically listening to my heart. I have to ensure that both my head and heart agrees with the same thing. Another strength I have is Self-Awareness and Justice, meaning if I know I have to do something, I have to go ahead and just do it. My weakness is being autocratic or authoritarian, which means everything has to be done my way. I don’t think this is true, I believe I am......

Len and Marilyn

...Negotiation Skills 11/26/13 Marilyn and Len exchanges 1. What are the objectives of both parties in the exchanges? Both parties want to impress their respective organizations with their negotiation performance, but they are both also trying to gain the concession they each feel they deserve out of the exchange as well. However they came to the table with the intention of holding different type of negotiations. Marilyn wanted a win-win situation, whereas Len was prepared for a win- lose situation. 2. How would you describe the general "tone" of the exchanges? Len took the stronger position in the negotiations and he used a hostile, threating tone probably to intimidate his opponent and to give himself leverage throughout their exchanges. Marilyn, on the other hand, was defensive and reserved, mainly because I think she came to the negotiation table with the intention of them working together and sharing the accounts. 3. Were Marilyn's objectives on the way to being effectuated in the first exchange? I do not think that Marilyn’s objectives were on the way to being invoked in the initial exchange because of her docile attitude. She allowed herself to be intimidated more so because she was unprepared more than just the fact she’s a female. Len used some blocking methods and put Marilyn in a position where she felt it necessary to defend her performance and......

The Wide Lens

...THE WIDE LENS - What successful innovators see that other miss Introduction The discussion topic is the difference between great innovations that succeed and great innovations that fail. In particular, it is worth noting that company’s success depends not just on the ability to execute its own promises but also on whether visible or hidden partners deliver on their promises too. In other words, company’s success depends not just on its own efforts but also on the ability, willingness, and likelihood that the partners that make up its innovation ecosystem succeed as well. Thus, a new perspective must be adopted, a wide lens, with which to assess a company strategy using a new set of tools and frameworks that will expose a company hidden sources of dependence. The Innovation Behind Spot and Avoidable Failure Although great execution is a necessary condition for success, it is not enough. Indeed, while the execution focus draws attention to important aspects of a company strategy (developing customer insight, building core competencies, and beating the competition), it creates a blind spot that hides key dependencies that are equally important in determining success and failure. Examples: Philips Electronics despite sterling execution and rave reviews, Philips's high-definition TV flopped, because its value creation depended on other innovations (the high-definition cameras and transmission standards necessary to make high-definition TV work) that failed to arrive on......

...CAUTHE 2007 Conference Tourism: Past Achievements, Future Challenges HOSPITALITY: A SOCIAL LENS: CHALLENGING THE EXISTING ORDER Paul Lynch University of Strathclyde, United Kingdom paul.lynch@strath.ac.uk Alison Morrison University of Strathclyde, United Kingdom ABSTRACT This paper locates developments in hospitality research, notably relating to hospitality studies, in the context of Kuhn’s (1962) evolution of scientific theory. The paper highlights the development of the ‘hospitality lens’ by Lashley, Lynch and Morrison (2007) and suggests it can facilitate the study of hospitality in any social situation from a strengthened social scientific perspective. It is argued that the study of hospitality should be not just for understanding hospitality but also society itself. Such an approach is suggested as both logical and healthy for the subject development with adoption of more critical perspectives on hospitality. The considerable implications of adopting a ‘new’ hospitality research agenda are described with reference to the conceptualization of hospitality, the nature of research and the research community, subject implications including journal publication outlets, and the higher education context. Keywords: Hospitality lens; ‘new’ hospitality; subject development. INTRODUCTION This paper moves beyond any pre-occupation with the vocational roots of hospitality higher education debate as it is considered that that debate has had its day. Rather, the content is framed......

...Once upon a time there was a girl named Len. She was called leggy because she only has a right leg because of lack of nutrition. She likes to have bonding with her family and friends but her classmate Patrick bullied her and always calling her leggy, they always tease her. One day Patrick bullied her again, when Len is about to tell it to their teacher but Patrick warned her and said “If you tell this to anybody I will tell your parents about your secret” Len replied “what secret are you talking about?” then Patrick replied “I will going to make my own story that will make you grounded” Len replied “Ok I won’t tell anybody about this but please don’t tell anyone about this” Len walked sadly but one of her classmate named Joyce asked her “why are you crying Len?” Len replied “No I’m not crying I’m okay” Joyce told to Len “If you have a problem just tell it to me and I will help you” and Len said “ok thank you for your concern”. After the school Len goes right to the park then when she arrived she saw a fountain, she asked the guard and said “can I ask a question? Why there are so many people there?” the guard replied “it’s because of the so called wishing fountain they said if you toss a coin in it and wish for something it will be granteLen try it out and toss a coin in it and wished that Patrick would not bully her ever again.

Ethical Lens

...Reflection of Group Assignments with Utilization of Professional Ethical Lens Inventory INTRODUCTION “Knowing’ ethical theories, principles, values, and morals, and ‘understanding’ how to apply them must go hand in hand” (Pozgar, 2013, p. 173). We have been asked to view many different ethical dilemmas and decide which course of action would best fit the given situation. There is no right or wrong choice. Each ethical decision is based upon the make up of one’s morality. “It is a guide to behavior that all rational persons would put forward for governing the behavior of all moral agents” (Pozgar, 2013, p. 57). To better understand our individual morality, we were asked to complete a series of 36 questions that would determine our own ethical viewpoint and how we utilize it to come to a conclusion. According to Baird, there are four ethical frameworks that are utilized upon attempting to solve an ethical dilemma. These frameworks are based upon four core values: rationality, sensibility, autonomy, and equality. Each framework is compromised of two of these four values. (Baird, 2005) There were two different scenarios that were completed individually in which we had to make an ethical decision based upon our own ethical lens. We then came together as a group to make the same decision again, but this time the decision needed to be made unanimously. Many frameworks were represented as we worked through each scenario and choice to come to a clear consensus. These......

Ethical Lens

...Ethical Lens Inventory As humans we all have a set of core values that we apply when resolving ethical conflict, understanding others as well as our own decision making strategies allows us to respect each others point of view better. Ethical Lens Inventory is used as way to identify what values are more important to you as an individual and what their challenges and strengths are. The inventory allows you to see ethical issues clearly and learn how to resolve them better. Being aware that people have different priorities and different values helps to respects each other’s point of views. My personal preferred lens is Rights/responsibility and results lens. Rights/Responsibility Lens is for people who think thoroughly through a problem and options before taking action and choosing a decision-making strategy. The symbol for this lens is the Telescope. On a telescope you look beyond what is at your reach to determine what to do. The strength of this lens is considering all the options possible leading to a stronger decision making strategy for others and your self. Its weakness is over analyzing to find a solution and making it time consuming. Also when there are so many options in hand it can become overwhelming to choose one. Result Lens is for people who need their intuition to verify that their answer is not only correct but also fair. The symbol for this lens is the microscope. When using a microscope you analyze and examine before taking the next step,...

Lens

...The ethical lens inventory is accurate with who I am as a person and my thought process. My lens is a results lens, and it is to the center of the entire lens. What the results lens says about me is I see things in shades of grey; I do not see just black and white. I want to make sure things are fair with other in my personal and work life. When I do solve problems or listen to others, I am not one to make a quick judgments or decisions, I have to sit back and think about all possible outcomes and have a well thought out solution, this can take me a day or two to make that decision. The "Ethicsgame" (2014) website, my behavior is “Doing the Right Thing,” I set very high standards for myself, but I don’t fault others providing they are trying to do the right thing as well. It has taken me a few years to realize that I can’t have high standards for others because they don’t see things the way I do. I have balance; I can use the entire lens spectrum when I need depending on the situation. My blind spot is none; I see the strengths and weaknesses in each of the lens. According to "Ethicsgame" (2014), "Discernment comes with ethical maturity and provides direction in specific situations.” I have always been ethically mature; I believe that comes from my upbringing and being in the military. My strengths are I am flexible with most circumstances, I am open minded, and I believe everyone has good intentions. Where I am weak, I have no patients for ignorance and people who are......

Ethical Lens

...Allison Vergonia January 30, 2012 Gen 200 Ethical Lens Inventory I enjoyed taking the Ethical Lens Inventory test. The results gave me a better understanding on how my moral and personal ethics coincide. My results indicate that my preferred ethical lens is the Reputation Lens. Some of the values that take priority are, Integrity, Justice, Courage, and civility. The Reputation Lens defines an action ethical if, “it is consistent with the habitual development of sound character traits including habits of thoughtful reflection, good intentions and noble human virtues.” I believe in fairness and honesty. I’m not so quick to make decisions and judgments. I think that this is a great quality, but it can be frustrating sometimes. I find that weighing out the pros and cons when having to make a judgment call is fair but can also are tedious. My blind spot is “Unrealistic Role Expectations”. I found this to be very interesting. When I am given a job I accomplish it with the best of my ability. This includes being honest, fair and loyal, I also expect these virtues to be important to my co-workers as well. I will take my blind spot in consideration when I’m working in a group and individually. My strengths are that I’m compassionate and I look for solutions that focus on virtues that are valued by the community. The vantage point it retains is an icon of opera glasses as well as a camera. The opera glasses “help us to see the stage on which we are all playing”. ......

...Bynature, I am a very reflective individual, and I usually spend a lot of time thinking about theconsequences of my actions before I make a move. I always try to encompass the good of thewhole in whatever I do, and I was surprised to find that this was exactly what the ethical lensexercise says about my ethical code of conduct.According to the ethical lens inventory, my preferred ethical lenses are the results lensand the reputation lens. I tend to believe that an action is ethical if the results that come from itare good and create the greatest happiness for the greatest number of people. To me, and ethicalact is one which is consistent with good character. I prioritize efficiency, civility, integritycourage and loyalty; and I believe that people should strive to maximize the satisfaction of thosewho are depending on them while avoid conflicts of interest at all times (University of Phoenix,2011).From the material in the Ethics Game, it seems that I also value sensibility to a certaindegree, and that I occasionally follow my heart to make choices. I tend to use reason a lot as wellin trying to find the rules of life. The Ethical lens inventory results say that I have the gift of compassion, and this helps me to put myself in the shoes of other when thinking about myactions. According to the results, I also use intuition and imagination, as well as informationgleaned from past experience to solve problems and determine the next course of action(University of Phoenix, 2011). ......
