Our reading this module/week allowed each student to explore a more specific area of interest, from accounting and finance to marketing and advertising or to look more closely at an ethical approach to the environment. With this in mind, read chapter 9 from Hess & Cameron as they explored the concept of forgiveness in an organizational context. Forgiveness is not often discussed in the workplace, but it has its place in any work environment and has a clear biblical basis. For this discussion board, answer the following questions:
- Compare the way the case at LTL Trucking reflects forgiveness with the way Scripture teaches us to forgive. What are the similarities and differences? How can leaders shape the way this concept is applied in the workplace?
- What Biblical connections can be made to the values displayed by this case? Are these values discussed in current business/organizational literature?
