  • The Ethical Self

  • A Journey Toward Ethical Maturity 2nd Edition

The Ethical Self will help you make sense of the variety of ethical theories that define appropriate behavior and equip you to become an ever more effective and ethical person-in-community.

As we strive to “do the right thing,” in our complex and ever changing world the question often becomes—how can I figure out how best to live? Used with the Ethical Lens Inventory, this book will give you a sense of your own Ethical Self—your own preferences for prioritizing values in tension as well as a preferred path for ethical decision making.

Learning to live authentically from your own ethical core, you will also understand and value the ethical perspectives of others. The Ethical Self introduces ethics as the set of agreements we make with ourselves and others about how to live in community together. The Ethical Self will not expect you to discover and memorize “right” answers but will give guidance as you learn to ask the right questions in order to develop strategies for ethical agility and the never-ending journey toward ethical maturity.

  • Ethical Lens Inventory™

  • For Personal Use Only

The Ethical Lens Inventory allows you to identify and understand your particular ethical perspective. What you learn may surprise you. You’ll find the strengths of your approach and discover the gifts your perspective brings that you can use to persuade others. And you’ll see a glimpse of your lens’s shadow side—the temptations and vices to watch out for on your journey toward ethical maturity. Much more than a personality test, the ELI is a means of truly knowing your ethical self.

NOTE: If you are taking a course using the ELI, please do not use this link. Your instructor will provide you a Class Code for registration.
