The Harm Test: Who gets hurt if you do this?

“One way of boiling down a lot of complex ethical principles is that you ought not do anything that causes unjustifiable harm.”

Michael Hoffman, Executive Director of the Center for Business Ethics at Bentley College.

  • “Ethics comprise the principles of morality, including both the science of the good & the nature of the right, and they constitute the rules of conduct in respect to a particular class of human actions, such as medical ethics.” (Myers & Salt, 2000)
  • Primum non nocere - First, do no harm
  •  Legality does NOT equate to ethics
  •  Ethics is the science of right moral conduct derived from an analysis of human nature by the light of reason (Myers & Salt, 2000)     
  • See CAADAC/CAADE Code of Ethics

  • Ethical “itch” when techniques used to accommodate the leader

Remember: You ‘re not responsible for fixing

members, just for giving a bit of guidance (leading, directing) so they can find their own

inner abilities to fix themselves.
