In Johnson, C. E. (2016). Organizational ethics: A practical approach (3rd ed.), our author walks the reader through 6 Components of Personal Ethical Development. These include:

 Component 1: Realistic Self-Appraisal

 Component 2: Discovering Vocation

 Component 3: Identifying Personal Values

 Component 4: Developing Character

 Component 5: Creating a Moral Identity

 Component 6: Drawing Upon Spiritual Resources This assignment asks you to consider and explore your personal beliefs. As our author suggests, “you are ultimately responsible for how you act” (pg. 37). Your analysis in this paper will consist of your personal thoughts on how your everyday actions are predicated. Consider The 6 Components of Ethical Development as you write your paper. In this assignment, you will:

 Write a two (2) page reflective paper (double spaced) in which you discuss: o Your personal theory of human nature and the 6 components of ethical development o Include examples and ideas you have learned through your own life experiences applying the course readings o Address how these may influence your personal decision-making.
