Abstract What are ethics and values? Values are what a person or society hold as important and a desired behavior. Ethics are sometimes based on a collection or one value. Ethics are what is considered morally right to one or more individuals. Upholding to good values and good ethical beliefs will greatly aid us in our lives, at our jobs, and in our schools. They effect the decisions that we make our successes or failures. Some of the important values to businesses, schools, and colleges are education, safety, a friendly and professional attitude, integrity, and honesty. Displaying integrity in a professional working environment will greatly benefit anyone. Integrity is a constant devotion to following guidelines based on good morals, ethics, and standards. Integrity will provide a safe and stable environment. Good integrity is found in all good managers. It is the key to leading by example. Ethics and values are the key to all good students, teachers, leaders, mentors, and all professionals. They are our guide through life, help us make good choices, and lead us to many life successes. 2

We are all raised with different values (some are considered standards in our society) because we all come from different families who have many diverse beliefs in everything. Our values affect the decisions that we make in ours lives. For this reason, a good set of internalized values are highly desired and needed throughout our lives. “The concept (of ethics) has come to mean various things to various people, but generally it's coming to know what it right or wrong in the workplace and doing what's right” (McNamara, n.d., para.8).
