This document aims to identify the factors of the ethical formation of directors in educational organizations by analyzing the practices and kind of values promoted in the moral issues decision during their managerial work.
The educational research has found that there is a close relationship between an efficient management and the manager’s leadership. An organization lingers through time due to the ethical principles scheme it has for the development of its management and leadership. Leadership does not only comprise technical and political competencies, but also ethical ones.
The approach of this work is the one of the analysis of the challenges found in the crucial actions in the managers’ decision making process, and how these moral situations affect the quality of the managers’ work. This research uses the qualitative methodology, which includes case studies, interviews of experts and former directors, and the analysis and interpretation of ethical factors involved in the solution of moral conflicts.
Some moral dilemmas or conflicts found are: Loyalty to the institution or the boss, following up the norm or the personal interests, loyalty to the institutional mission or to the political group, co-workers selection, fair treatment for the different stakeholders of the educational community, and other training elements for facing such conflicts, as: Development of moral convictions, accountability and co-accountability, learning from other leaders and voices and communication establishment.
