A code of ethics is foundational to demonstrating your character as a leader with personal integrity. A code establishes behavioral expectations for your own life and perhaps for your team or company. A personal code is based on the values that guide your behavior when you find yourself in ethical crossroads. It brings clarity to advanced decision making.

In complex decision making, ethical values and principles may collide.
