Personal Values Paper
Students at University of Phoenix were asked to complete the Williams Institute Ethics Awareness Inventory self-assessment. The students were then instructed to examine the Ethics Awareness Inventory and the ethical profile they are most closely aligned with and least closely aligned with. They were then asked to compare their personal values to the values of Kudler Fine Foods. Therefore, this paper will examine the Williams Institute Ethics Awareness Inventory self-assessment, the results of Tracey Adams, a University of Phoenix student, and how her values compare to the values of Kudler Fine Foods.
People make decisions in their business and personal life and must rely on their values to make ethical decisions. How can ethics be categorized or defined? Ethics are defined by The Williams Institute as “a branch of philosophy, is concerned with morality, moral problems and moral judgments, dealing with such elusive terms as values, right and good. It deals with issues beyond the realm of traditional rules and customs and unconscious habits” (The Williams Institute for Ethics and Management, 2008). The Ethics Awareness Inventory provides test takers with two ethical perspectives: one they are most aligned with and one they are least aligned with. These perspectives make up the acronym CORE (Character, Obligation, Results, and Equity).
The character perspective focuses on what it is good to be rather than what it is good to do. The individual’s character is more important than their duty, conduct or actions. This individual has solid virtues and intrinsic worth.
The obligation perspective focuses on the individual’s duty and obligation to do what is morally correct. This theory focuses on what is intended by our actions. This individual has a conscience and is driven by moral reason.
The results perspective focuses on utilitarianism. This…...

...Arguments for and against the existence of God have been proposed by philosophers, theologians, scientists, and others for thousands of years. Inphilosophical terms, arguments for and against the existence of God involve primarily the sub-disciplines of epistemology (theory of knowledge) andontology (nature of god) and also the theory of value, since concepts of perfection are connected to notions of God. The debate concerning the existence of God is one of the oldest and most discussed debates in human history. A wide variety of arguments exist which can be categorized asmetaphysical, logical, empirical, or subjective. The existence of God is subject to lively debate in philosophy,[1] the philosophy of religion, and popular culture. The Western tradition of the existence of God began with Plato and Aristotle, who made arguments for God's existence that would now be categorized as cosmological arguments. Later, Epicurus formulated the problem of evil: if God is omnipotent, omniscient and omnibenevolent, why does evil exist? The field of theodicy arose from attempts to answer this question. Other thoughts about the existence of God have been proposed by St. Anselm, who formulated the first ontological argument; Ibn Rushd (Averroes) and Aquinas, who presented their own versions of the cosmological argument (thekalam argument and the first way), respectively; Descartes, who said that the existence of a benevolent God was logically necessary for the evidence of the senses to be......

Operationalizing Values and Value Systems

...Operationalizing Values and Value Systems in National Agricultural Research System N.H. Rao National Academy of Agricultural Research Management Rajendranagar Hyderabad 500 030 Abstract Value systems serve as frames of reference for behavioural responses at both individual and organizational levels. Institutions in which the organizational culture is highly evolved have invested in developing strong internal value systems to resolve ethical dilemmas and value conflicts, and ensure high performance, quality, social responsibility and employee professional satisfaction. Such investments contribute to both individual and organizational development and growth. There is a need to develop a viable organizational culture in institutions of the National Agricultural Research System (NARS). This paper is concerned with how strong-willed and disciplined research and education managers, scientists and teachers can contribute to the development and operationalization of strong internal value systems in NARS. Three kinds of situations, where value conflicts can arise are identified. These relate to individual identity, identifying with the group in the work place, and organizational identity in society. By learning to identify each kind of value conflict situation, individuals can learn to resolve value conflicts in a practical way by a combination of self-inquiry and introspection with shrewedness and realism. The extent to which an individual can do this,......

...Chapter 8 Rational-Emotive-Behavior Therapy and Cognitive-Behavior Therapy CHAPTER OVERVIEW Rational-Emotive-Behavior Therapy (REBT), developed by Albert Ellis, is a therapy that consciously uses cognitive, emotive, and behavioral techniques to help clients. REBT theorists stress that human beings have choices. The control of ideas, attitudes, feelings, and actions is specific to the person who arranges a life according to personal dictates. Having little control over what happens or what actually exists, people do have choices and control over how they view the world and how they react to difficulties. CHAPTER OBJECTIVES After completing this chapter, the student will be able to: 1. Identify the philosophical assumptions associated with rational-emotive behavior therapy and cognitive-behavior therapy. 2. Explain the nature of people according to rational-emotive-behavior therapy. 3. Discuss rational and irrational thoughts and the three areas in which people hold irrational beliefs. 4. Describe the REBT process of teaching people to think and behave in more personally satisfying ways. 5. Summarize the "A, B, C, D, and E," approach to counseling. 6. Compare and contrast REBT with other theories. Evaluate the limitations and contributions of the REBT approach to counseling. CHAPTER SUMMARY Rational-Emotive-Behavior Therapy (REBT) has emerged from what Albert Ellis considered a limited rational-persuasive...

Poor Learning Abilities of Selected Second Year Students Due to Neglected Filipino/Christian Values

...the learning and knowledge we may need and of course having the right attitude and proper values in facing all the challenges that we may encounter in life. Family is the basic unit of the society, our first school, our first teacher where in we obtained the foundation of our learning. At our early age, our parents never taught us the figures of speech or even idioms; they never tell us the law of gravity or even the logic behind of the law of supply and demand; they did not teach us to find the x and y in math. Instead, the first thing they taught us is how to pray, kissing the hand of elders (Pagmamano) which is sign of being respectful and how to be good with others through giving (generosity). The family is the place where we can have the best learning and that is being a good person. Besides the family, the school is another social unit that gives values education among children. Parents entrust their children to the school to perform significant tasks of developing children's potential to prepare them for active participation in the future. The teacher is the most important element in the educational success of the child in school. But as the child grows in all aspects, changes occur and the best values learned from home slowly fades away and some being neglected. This is due to some factors brought about by the fast changing world. When we develop the moral values of students, we teach them moral intelligence. Moral intelligence is the capacity to understand......

...Balancing Values, Responsibilities and School for a Non-Traditional Student Jwendoline Hernandez Foundation for General Education and Professional Success GEN/200 April 28, 2014 Jillian Folger Values and Responsibilities Everyone at a very young age has values and responsibilities instilled in them. They are life lessons, principles and rules we are expected to live by. Ranging from how to live, what is right from wrong, how to treat ourselves and one another. Notwithstanding, as each lives their own lives each develops their own values and duty, amending old and creating new ones. Taking ownership of the consequences from the choices, decisions and actions one makes is considered by many as having personal responsibility. Traditional versus Non-Traditional Students Nowadays, it is more common to see individuals well in their years returning to school after having their own families and having professional experience under their belt. For many weighing their professional ambitions and family duties. Forbus, Newbold, Mehta (2011) conducted a research that reflects on the differences between the traditional and the non-traditional students’ expectations for the college experience.

An Insight Into the Effects of Traditional and Modern Values Have on Chinese Students.

...An Insight Into The Effects Of Traditional And Modern Values Have On Chinese Students. In a space of little more than 60 years, a 5, 500 yer old culture has been all but dissembled; corevalues, traditions and lifestyle have been routed. The most obvious and important element of Chinese culture that has been fractured is the family unit. On the surface the ‘family’ is declared to be the center and heart of Chinese society; however, in reality the modern Chinese family is but a shadow of its past paradigm. The traditional family began to feel the strain in 1949, to fracture in the dreadful-decade of 1969 to 1979 and was finally shattered in 1979 with the double hit of the One Child Policy and the Open Door Policy. No one, at the time, could have possibly predicted or foreseen the cultural upheaval these policies would wrought on China; the former eliminated the large family demographic and the latter permitted not only financial development but foreign-cultural exports many of which are the antithesis of what past generations of Chinese had confronted. Never before has one country had to experience a cataclysmic social upheaval such as China has in the space of three decades; the upheaval is unique because it has concurrently affected three generations. It is the current school and university age Chinese that have to shoulder the dual burden of a longed for and evaporating traditional family structure on the one hand, and, on the other, nurture the future of this great nation.......

Name: Institution: Remember questionnaire I did re write it whole Abstract The international students’ enrolment in Malaysian private higher education institutions acts as a major contributor to the national economic ability of the higher education institutions.

...Jillian Harris December 8, 2015 Intro to Social Work Dr. Sylvia Boynton Values Paper My personal and professional values are congruent to social work and the NASW Code of Ethics. One of the values is my self-determination to promote social justice and social change on behalf of the clients. I would like to highlight how important this value is to me because this was one of the reasons that motivated me to pursue this career, which is not related to any other educational experience that I may be taking interest in right now. Prior to pursuing my education at Florida Memorial University I was working as a tutor and did a bit of volunteering at the Broward County School Board after School Program, which further developed my interest for social justice. On my second day of volunteering at Cypress Elementary School in Pompano Beach, Florida, I encountered an epiphany as I was waiting in one of my kid’s class room. I realized that social work was my vocation. I was able to foresee myself doing something related to this population, which would challenge my skills. I saw a need of sincere and passionate people like myself in this type of setting in where a lot of children had adapted parents and a few that were also in and out of foster care. Oppression has always bother me because I find it unfair that a lot of people, especially children are not treated with dignity and respect as they should instead many people take advantage of them for profitable purposes.

...Core Values: The Foundation of Leadership James Jarrett, Professor of Leader Development Introduction The United States of America began by establishing its core values in the Declaration of Independence, which reads, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”1 The core values of equality, freedom, and opportunity were established for this Nation in the Declaration of Independence. These core values provided the focus by which this country moved towards greatness and created a source of contention from within to ensure that all citizens receive equal and fair treatment. From the example of the United States establishing core values, leaders must determine their own core values. Identifying and establishing individual, as well as, organizational core values is a critical function if leaders are to bring their organization to high performance. Leaders‟ goals, decisions, and actions must be aligned with their core values to obtain personal and organizational success. This chapter examines the importance of establishing core values and posits that the process for establishing them should be a vital part of individual goal setting and organizational goal- and vision-setting. In On Becoming a Leader, Warren Bennis writes, “Until you truly know yourself, strengths and weaknesses, and know what you want to do and why...
