Referring to your growing body of work from notable leaders, including videos, explain the relationship between ethics and power. For example, how might Hobbes advise us to use our personal power or what does Tolstoy indicate is the way for leaders to behave? Plutarch? Are they telling us to do the same thing or is one asking for something entirely different from what another wants?
To complete a discussion appropriately, you will meet the following criteria:
- Think of discussion boards as mini-research papers. We want to keep them focused and integrated.
- Choose points that you find interesting/important and elaborate on those points in your discussion. Do NOT describe or restate the content of the discussion reading or video.
- A minimum response is 600 words.
- Every initial response is required to include, minimum, three scholarly or peer-reviewed resources to support your response outside of your required texts. Our library allows you to choose these settings to help you find appropriate research to support your work.
- Do NOT use Wikipedia.com, wiki-anything, about.com, how.com, answers.com, blogs, or any other generic answer base, because you cannot verify the accuracy of the information on the website. Instead, search our extensive library databases to find articles that contain verified information to support your discussion. If you find a blog from a notable source, you can include that information, but the blog will not count as one of your scholarly references.
- There are several articles in Course Documents and Web Links that you can, and should, use as references to support your discussions.
- Every response must be completed in APA style. That includes all citations, both in text and reference, and format. This includes indented paragraphs, font size, and other particulars that you will find specified in the APA manual. You will find an example of a paper written in APA style in the Start Here module. Discussions do not require cover pages, tables of content, and other front matter, and can be copied and pasted from a draft document, such that attachments are not necessary.
