moral codes. Employees looking to further their career may be more inclined to ignore ethical decisions in order to please their boss. Personally, I am beginning in my career and need to understand that this sort of pressure happens from authorities daily. The Ethics Unwrapped video explained that most people are overconfident that we will always act ethically when a stressful situation arises. Typically, this is not the case and a lot of the time we choose the unethical decision to justify our own career advancement. The speaker of this video emphasized that the most important part of reduce this overconfidence in your ethical decision is to have humility about your bounds of your human decision making. To overcome this, you cannot box your mind in the idea that you will always make the right decision when the time comes. Keeping all of this in mind when starting my career, I believe that I can make better ethical decisions when feeling pressure from my future bosses. In my future career I will most likely encounter an employer that will pressure me, so understanding that I have limits in my ability to make ethical decisions will make me a better businessman. If I am in a company with a culture such as Wells Fargo, I feel better prepared to avoid the main stream pleasing of the boss through unethical decisions. As a McCombs student, it becomes more imperative to study ethical decision making to prepare for my career.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
