Ethics and Character Matter

Ethical behavior is based on solid PRINCIPLES.

• Principles the high standards of rules and guidelines in both business and personal life.

What are some of your principles?

Classroom Principles
• Tell the truth
• Not get in to trouble
• Be nice to people
• Treating elders with respect
• Treat others like you would like to be treated
• Don’t steal
Character Development
• Character development can be divided into stages in which people advance from childish behavior to mature and responsible behavior based on principles.
Character Development
• A child learns that exhibiting bad behavior will result in punishment, while good behavior will result in rewards.
• As a child matures, the influence of others’ expectations of him or her grows.
• Eventually, the child may reach a stage of maturity in which he or she acts on the basis of a set of principles.
Character Development

Ethical people do not act just because they can. They consider the results and affects on others before making a decision.

Exposure in the Media

Professional Athletes, Coaches, Politicians, Artists, Celebrities, Business People, and even Teachers sometimes make the media for BAD ETHICAL DECISIONS.

How does this negative exposure affect you?

• Having a profit motive for a business is sometimes mistakenly confused with acting unethically out of greed.
• Making a profit is a legitimate goal of a business. Without profits a business will cease to exist.
• A need to make a profit is not an excuse for unfair or deceitful business practices.
• When athletes take illegal drugs, they are behaving unethically and getting an unfair advantage over their competition.

Barry Bonds

• Chris Perez (Indians) was fined \$750 for an un-sportsman like tweet.
• Nascar: \$384,494
• Kurt Busch was fined \$50,000 for driving recklessly on pit road
• Only fans can really influence the behavior of ethically challenged athletes and celebrities.
• Fans can effectively take a stand against bad behavior by not buying tickets or the products promoted by unethical celebrities.
• As long as the fans put up with poor behavior from celebrities, the celebrities who lack self-control will consider themselves above the standards of ethics.
Effective and Ethical

Good decisions are both ethical and effective.

• Good decisions are the right choices for the long term.
• When sports teams establish core values and demand that players act within ethical guidelines, the players will ‘step up to the plate’
