Part 1: A working definition of Corporate Social Responsibility mandates that a corporation not only has economic and legal obligations, but certain responsibilities to society that extend beyond these obligations (McGuire). Corporate Social Responsibility encompasses the economic, legal, ethical, and discretionary (philanthropic) expectations that society has of organizations (Carroll). We read about this as Price described the concepts of contingency and special obligations associated with corporations, businesses, etc.
In your opinion, what organization seems to exemplify these definitions in their practices? Do you think these practices are sustainable in a global marketplace where competitors may not subscribe to the concept of Corporate Social Responsibility, and do you think organizational ethics can realistically be incorporated into the strategic planning process without legal imperatives to do so? Please provide the name of the organization and the practices that they promote which merit your recommendation.

Part 3: Part : In chapter 4 this week we learned about the root of where we lead from. Price talks about traits and the history of the historical view of leaders and their behaviors. He identifies types of leaders that use “external or internal” methods in making ethical decisions. He then examines how moral rules (personal or social) might make it harder for a leader to do what he/she morally ought to do. He then discusses leadership effectiveness and some of the main characteristics that affect the ways in which we reason, from control to confidence, to emotional integrity. While we view the many components that might influence our reasoning it is important to learn about our own Virtues, Traits, and reasons for “reasoning”. Some literature focuses on our “reasoning” being tied to our identity via female/male. They refer to this theory of the “ethics of justice” and the “ethics of care”. One critical component of ethics is understanding your own worldviews and how those impact your ability to be fair. Take this quiz to start exploring your own style in terms of interacting and decision making.
