Listening to the words of many different people who speak the different languages of their discipline and their culture will be necessary. As we listen and make business decisions, our moral and ethical foundation must be preeminent. Developing a personal ethical statement is the first step in making ethical decisions.

In Romans 12:2 (New International Version), you are told: â€œDo not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what Godâ€™s will is â€“ His good, pleasing and perfect will.â€ Though it is not likely that Paul anticipated social media sites such as Facebook, it is clear that God did. Paul, however, experienced many of the same challenges you face with todayâ€™s media, just at a different pace. In this study, we will examine potential responses to organizational crises catalyzed by social media.
