Michele Simms——We love reading the classics or watching classic films because of what they teach us about ourselves and about life; they are timeless gateways to authenticity. When we return to them years later, we continue to pull from the meaning of their deeper message.

Since its publication in , the article is one of the most read and included by HBR as part of any must-read on ethics. Peers, students and colleagues have all benefited from understanding the difference between encountering a difficult ethical decision and a defining moment. A defining moment, however, challenges us in a deeper way by asking us to choose between two or more ideals in which we deeply believe.

We form our character in defining moments because we commit to irreversible courses of action that share our personal and professional identities We reveal something new about us to ourselves and others because defining moments uncover something that had been hidden or crystallize something that had been only partially known. And we test ourselves because we discover whether we will live up to our personal ideals or only pay them lip service. To assist us in this process, Badaracco identifies three types of defining moments.

The value of these categories, from which he draws from classic and contemporary philosophers, are the thought-provoking, deeper yet practical questions one can ask while sifting through two right courses of action.

The author states that defining moments become more difficult to resolve as one advances in the organization thus making the second two categories more challenging.

The more self-aware one is, the more likely the attempt to match behavior to his or her beliefs and internal standards. For example, if individuals have norms against stealing and cheating, those who are self-aware are much less likely to engage in these behaviors. Some evidence suggests that self-aware individuals are more likely to assume responsibility for a given action.

Research and practice in systems theory cites self-awareness as an integral component to effecting systemic organizational change. Self-awareness can be applied to the broad, abstract and far-reaching i. The process of self-awareness requires a person to examine his or her potential actions in light of moral standards, thus becoming an integral component of exercising mindfulness in the workplace.

Further, the practice of these skills requires an environment of silence, time alone, and daily, dedicated time disconnected from the online world. Engaging in practices that could be defined as counter-cultural are in themselves an indicator of character; being true to such practices over time is why the author defines building character as a discipline. Choose one to reflect upon: how did you ultimately choose between two ideals?

How did you manage this test? What did you learn about yourself and others? What irreversible course of action shaped your personal and professional identity as a result? Are you living up to your personal ideals?

Defining Moments: When Managers Must Choose between Right and Right

Thoughtful managers sometimes face business problems that raise difficult, deeply personal questions. In these situations, managers find themselves wondering: Do I have to leave some of my values at home when I go to work? How much of myself -- and of what I really care about -- do I have to sacrifice to get ahead? When I get to the office, who am I? Difficult questions like these are often matters of right versus right, not right versus wrong. Sometimes, a manager faces a tough problem and must choose between two ways of resolving it.
