How do you make an ethical decision? What guides your thinking and helps you through a dilemma you may be faced with in your professional or personal life? Individuals may use a wide range of methods to help them make an ethical decision. This may include personal values, codes of ethics, or societal norms. Models of ethical decision making can help guide you through ethical dilemmas that test your moral compass.
