Unfairness, Justice, and Rigidity Stories

Free tool available upon request from the Project on Positive Leadership.

  • Author: Ryan Quinn
  • Date: 2020
  • Series: Virtues and Vices
  • Pages: 7
  • Summary: This is one of the tools that makes up the Project on Positive Leadership’s “Virtues and Vices” series of instructional tools. It contains four stories of justice, unfairness, or rigidity. A tool with multiple stories enables students to examine what is required to exhibit ideal justice across different settings, and to account for the differing perspectives of multiple stakeholders. Each story includes carefully-crafted reflection questions to provoke the students’ learning, to prepare them for class, to prepare themselves to practice justice, and to motivate them to be more mindful about their approach to leadership.
