“Ethics Are Negotiable; Morality Is Absolute.
” – monk of YHVHMan is not born with ethics, and it does not grow on our own. In itself, the potential capacity for social behavior grows. It’s like building with parallel settlement. As soon as the residential block grows, tenants immediately populate there, at the earlier stages and will change throughout the lifetime of the person.Interpersonal communication in society implies from each person the fulfillment of certain norms and rules of conduct. Rules and norms of human behavior in society are known under the concept of ethics. The main purpose of ethics is to protect the honor and dignity of a person when communicating in society.
Historically, the rules of ethics have developed long ago. In each state they were fixed by special laws, for observance of which strict supervision was conducted. Ethics in society implies the unity of a person’s high inner morality with outwardly dignified manners. Only such harmony of the inner and outer personality makes it possible to make a person’s behavior sincere and natural. Modern ethics are universal and contain general rules and norms, although each people makes their own additions based on national and cultural traditions. Ethics contain norms of behavior, regulating the actions of a person in various public places. Based on this, there are different types of ethics, corresponding to those places where the person turns out.
Business ethics – regulates the rules and standards of conduct in the workplace. Diplomatic ethics- the rules of conduct of employees of the diplomatic corps in communication with the representatives of the country in which it is located. He regulates the order of visits, diplomatic receptions and meetings. Military ethics is the rules of conduct of servicemen, which determine a strict hierarchy and unquestioning adherence to orders of the senior in rank. General ethics – the rules and norms governing everyday communication between people. Respectful attitude towards the elder in age, the man to the woman, between the passengers in transport. The rules of ethics are not absolute and they should be followed according to the situation. What is inadmissible in one case may be the norm in other circumstances.
Norms of ethics are, as a rule, unwritten rules, in contrast to morality, but their knowledge is an important part of the formation of a person’s inner culture. A cultural person not only accepts these rules, but also strictly follows them not only in public places, but also at home. The basis for the formation of internal ethics are benevolence, responsibility and dignity. In addition, ethics are impossible without tact and sense of proportion, which must be inherent in every person brought up. The location to people and at the same time a sense of proportion will help to adequately represent themselves in any situation. Thus, ethics in society requires a person to constantly educate an internal culture based on respect for the entire society.
Several years ago, while I have been living in Dubai and worked for Zara as a sales associate my manager, Carlo, has influenced a lot and motivated me to do my best at my workplace. I had to take an emergency pay leave because of my family issue. And per the regulations of UAE I could take only 7 days. However, my manager understood my situation and gave me two weeks annual leave which was more than enough and I was able to fly back to my country and solve all the problems my family was going through. Later on, I showed my full potential and increased the sales for the quarter and our store was awarded with the Certificate of Gratitude.
So, this experince of mine shows that good ethics involves demonstrating respect for key moral principles that include honesty, fairness, equality, dignity, and diversity.
