You will compile a series of statements (usually done as bullet points) that will assert the
attitudes, actions, and behaviors of the person you genuinely aspire to become. Because of the
personal nature of this assignment, you will not be asked to discuss these with anyone else.
As you prepare to complete this assignment, schedule several blocks of time to be alone with
your own thoughts. Begin by thinking about your own goals, norms, beliefs, and values. Ask
yourself what is really important in your life and begin to reflect upon these areas. During this
time, jot down notes for review and further reflection. After you have done this (probably over
the course of several days), make a list of statements that you believe are an accurate
representation of your beliefs and values, your Christian worldview, etc. You may find that the
person that you are may be somewhat different from whom you would really like to be as a Christian businessperson.
Take this assignment seriously. Work privately and independently. Do not try to flatter your
instructor with words you do not mean. Avoid trite expressions or egotistical phrases. This work
must be an earnest endeavor that represents the person you are happy with and/or actually want
to be. This assignment is not a confession of your shortcomings, and it is not to be something so
idealistic that you would be embarrassed if someone else were to read it. It must be realistic and
attainable. You must be willing to put the finished document in a place where you can refer to it
frequently so that you can make the statements an active part of your consciousness. Some day in
the future, of course, you may make modifications; however, do your best to make it as
applicable as possible to your present understanding.
Your name and course information must be in the upper left-hand corner of the submitted
document. The title must be “Personal Code of Ethics.” Limit your work to 1 page (maximum).
You must have 5–12 ethical statements. Type each statement in bold font and begin each
statement with the words, “I will…” Single space within each statement and double space
between statements.
