Roup Organizational Ethics Discussion question

Please answer the following DQ:

1. Describe a situation at work where the organizational values and systems supported a particular behavior and you felt pressured to go along. How did you behave? What was the outcome? In your opinion, did you compromise your values and beliefs?

2. You have a very rare blood type. One day, you wake up in hospital. In the nearby bed lies a world-famous violinist who is connected to you with various tubes and machines.

To your horror, you discover that you have been kidnapped by the Music Appreciation Society. Aware of the maestros impending death, they hooked you up to the violinist. If you stay in the hospital bed, connected to the violinist, he will be totally cured in nine months. You are unlikely to suffer harm. No one else can save him. If you do not stay in the hospital bed, the violinist will die a painful death. Do you have an obligation to stay connected?
