ETHICAL DECISIONS IN LEADERSHIP PISCO (Problem Solving Model) Problem (Step#1): In this case, there are two main characters: John Bellow, a loan officer at First National Federal Bank and deals with customers who apply for loans and the second is his colleague Mary Willow, another loan officer who is a recent graduate from the University Of Wyoming School Of Business and is deeply involved with the ethics related to her profession. John discusses with Mary the case of Michael Johnson and tells her that they need to visit a site for which a loan is under processing. Johnson has offered John that they may visit the site for proceeding and he has offered to bear the expenses for the visit. Mary is emphasizing on that the expense of their trip should be paid by the bank however John is willing to make the trip out of Johnson’s pocket. Mary is already in debt of $20,000 but still she is willing to be fair with the bank as well as its customers. John also asked Mary to call the bank customer to donate for the annual fund raiser picnic but Mary refused to do so because for her, its again unethical to pressure the customers to donate unwillingly. Fairness and honesty are big issues, a very complex dilemma especially if this will somehow hurt the business. Since ethics are moral issues, thus making a decision that will have negative effect on the company is going to be tough for the person who will be making the decision. The question here is that should Mary make the trip on Johnson’s expenses and put the expense on the bank’s side or should go with her moral values and deny John to make the trip on Johnson’s money?
