Following on our discussion last night, here let us consider that human beings are essentially thinking and feeling persons. We are rational and emotional. We engage our minds in critical analysis; we “thinking things through.” We also call on our “gut feeling” or emotional sense of what we should or should not do – in other words, we have intuition.
As we discussed, perhaps we can think of the ethical leader in this context. What are the respective roles of thinking and feeling when it comes to being an leader who is faced with ethical situations and ethical dilemmas that involve decision-making? Please provide an example, actual or hypothetical, of a leader approaching a decision with these two dimensions, of thought and feeling.
