What is ethical decision making?

Comments from Lyndsay:

Hi Princess,
Thanks for the question. Ethical decision making means making a decision either for yourself or with others that follows the "code of conduct" you believe to be just and fair. This does not necessarily mean following the letter of the law.

First stop is to find out your facts. Who is impacted by the decision? What would be the likely consequences of your decision? Is the decision reversible? And so on.

If you are struggling with making the decision it is often because you are lacking details, or the problem is complex or unusual. It is okay to ask for help and to talk through your decision and if it still sits okay with your values.

I've written about ethical decision making in more detail here, including different models of ethical decision making.

Warm Regards
