In an earlier module, we explored the concept of ethics and ethical behavior. In this assignment, we will take it one step further. You will look at the impact of having an ethical framework when making leadership decisions that can affect the current or future path of a company.
For this short paper, imagine you are working at Enron in the late 1990s. Share an example of unethical organizational decision making from a company leader.
Show how the decision-making process was flawed. What were the ethical behaviors of company leaders, and how did those behaviors impact not only the communications process but the company goals and strategies as well? What strategies supported by systems theory principles and best practices would support your communication practices as an Enron executive?
Guidelines for Submission: The paper should be submitted as a 2- to 4-page Microsoft Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, one-inch margins, and sources cited in APA format.
