Moral Authorship: six tasks
To develop craftsmanship in your profession, it is necessary to become aware of the personal stories that stem in your life, the social environment that causes the language and types of stories you use in your thoughts and shaping the choices you make.
Craftsmanship intertwines skills and artistry.
By introducing the concept of moral authorship, we want to create the opportunity to slow down and maybe even stand still. To think about our practical knowledge, developing it into practical wisdom -phronesis-. By discussing our practical knowledge with yourself and others, we enrich the phronesis and thereby we are teaching ourselves to understand the moral choices in our lives and our profession and the connection with our language and our narratives.
To explore and reflect on that artistry, knowledge and skills of our profession, I refer to six tasks to achieve moral authorship:
Six tasks challenge people-professionals to rewrite their moral story, repeatedly asking questions about hard grounds, marshlands, crossroads, learning points and resting points. Professionals challenge not to get rid of problems but to seek out and embrace them. Proactively explore and translate the moral dimension of their work to moralize.
