How do I use my profile to be a better person both in my personal and in my professional life?
The theory of moral development developed initially by Lawrence Kohlberg at Harvard University in 1981 suggests that we mature from the moral infancy of obeying Rules to the moral maturity of making our own judgements based on moral Values. His student Carol Gilligan added to this theory by demonstrating the importance of the ethic of care for People in our decision-making.
When making good decisions and doing the right thing, we strongly suggest that
1. We respect good simple Rules that keep us and our communities safe, but also
2. Recognize the importance of making good judgements based on moral Values like fairness, wisdom and humility, as well as
3. Care deeply about the impact of our actions on other People.
We also recommend that instead of simply obeying orders, we debate honestly and openly the difficult choices we face with our families, friends and work colleagues.
