An Ethical Minefield
What do you do when you are confronted with an unpredictable boss? Lucy is caught in an ethical minefield. She never knows what her boss's next move will be. He says one thing and does another; he blames others rather than take ownership for his own decisions; he loves the 'bright lights' when things go right, but hides behind others when things go south; he likes to be liked and gets angry when things don’t go his way; he want's to roll out new products and services before due diligence and process is completed; he operates from misinformation and his own bias without checking facts and coming to grips with his stereotypical approaches. Lucy needs the work and he pays her extremely well; she is competent in what she does and is confident in her abilities. She enjoys her work but is constantly faced with ethical dilemmas. Does all this sound familiar? What should Lucy do? More importantly, what would you do?
