Ethics and Emails
Thanks to Talerang my Republic day began with me proudly singing the national anthem in cohesion with 21 other students in my class, who in a very short time have become people I can share, be honest and myself with. I find this spectacular considering we have met each other only THRICE.
Well for those of you anxious to know-we covered written communication and ethical dilemmas this week.
We have been writing tons and tons as a part of our homework and prework for Talerang . But today, we were taught how to write in a structured manner. We learnt the importance of brevity, writing in context and the importance of being proactive and asking for feedback. I took back a great deal because writing well is such an asset. And something we all use all the time.
We spent the afternoon discussing ethical dilemmas with an HBS Case study, which was extremely thought provoking and challenging. An ethical dilemma never has a clear distinction between the right and wrong thing to do. The class shared some of the dilemmas they had faced and we all empathized with them. The case we discussed was a conflict of loyalty- to your best friend or your company. And we were torn apart trying to make the right decision. Which we came around to by the end of our discussion.
Upon refection of the day and previous sessions gone by, I feel that my greatest learning has come from my 21 peers. Constantly critiquing each other’s areas of improvements and learning from what we do well, be it on essays or ethics. They have challenged me to work beyond my abilities and to enjoy the process at the same time.
