The purpose of this paper is to discuss the ethical dilemmas that emanate from the relationship between senior managers as researchers and co-workers who participate in organisational research projects. A causal loop model has also been developed to help illustrate the elements associated with ethical issues as they relate to organisational research. Finally, a series of strategies are put forward to assist in dealing with ethical dilemmas that emerge from organisational research. These strategies are then discussed further using the lens of organisational learning and model I and II theories-in-use
