You will write an APA 6th Edition paper, 5-7 double-spaced pages in length, on an executive or leader that you wish to study. They should be considered a C-Level (CEO, CIO, CFO, etc.) executive or prominent leader. At a minimum this person needs to be responsible for a significant function in an organization and have supervisory responsibility over others. The interview may be conducted on the phone, on-line, or in person. This paper must include a minimum of five (5) peer-reviewed, refereed journal articles pertaining to your subject’s ethics. As a guideline, your paper should include:
A description of the subject’s ethical beliefs and practices. Two pages should suffice. What challenges have they encountered in the workplace that have shaped their views on ethics?
An analysis of the subject’s ethics. How did he or she evolve their view of ethics?
What ethical theories are expressed or implied in his or her discussion of ethics. Examine whether there were inconsistencies, deficiencies, inadequacies in his or her ethical theory. If there were no shortcomings, account for the strength of the subject’s ethical position. What motivated the executive to act appropriately or inappropriately, in your opinion? This should be approximately two-three pages.
Do you agree with your subject’s approach to ethics? If not, why not, and if so, then why? What did you learn from this interview and your research? About two pages are adequate for this portion.
You are to summarize and analyze the content of the interview, not provide a verbatim transcript of the interview. This assignment is due on Sunday of Week 6, and is worth 30 Points.
