On Loyalty and Whistleblowing
Your task in this paper is twofold:

First, from this week’s readings, you have a choice.

(A) Select one of this week’s two main readings — Bird or Soles. In your paper’s first part, briefly explain the central argument of the piece you chose. What is the author primarily trying to convince you of, and why? Devote no more than half your reflection piece to this expository task.

(B) Address one of this week’s case studies — either the Hersh piece on Abu Ghraib or the Ross piece on the whistleblower complaint against Donald Trump. In your paper’s first part, briefly explain the scenario that generates an ethical problem of whistleblowing.

Second, depending on whether you chose to write about one of the main readings or the case study, clearly and succinctly explain (A) whether you are convinced by the author’s argument, and why or why not, or (B) what you think is the morally correct way to address the ethical problem raised in the scenario you chose to analyze. Be sure to spell out your reasons use at least one concrete example to illustrate your perspective.

Overview
In this module, we analyze loyalty and whistle-blowing as problems of responsible leadership, with special attention to case studies that have had an outsized impact on current events in our own society. Our focus in this module will be on how ethical leadership challenges are faced not only by business leaders, but also by their employees, customers, and community stakeholders. How can those with less institutional power hold to account those who have more?

Learning Objectives
Upon successful completion of this module, you will be able to:

Investigate possible failure modes for ethical leadership and apply them to our own experience.
Dialogue about loyalty: its foundations, importance, and pitfalls.
Apply what we have learned in this module to crises of ethical leadership in recent and current events of great significance for our society.
Key Concepts
This module focuses on the following major topics:

A taxonomy of ways in which stakeholders fail to practice ethical leadership in business settings
One theorist’s view of the ethical bases for employee loyalty
Practical situations where problems of responsible moral leadership, especially whistle-blowing, have had significant and continuing repercussions on society
