TitleLeadership and Ethics

The ethical dimension of leadership has implications for us as persons, workers, members of society, and citizens of the world. Our family, community and our social, cultural and religious traditions shape our perception of what is ethical. Ethics permeates all facets of our lives: intellectual, emotional, spiritual, cultural and social. As leaders, our responsibility for ethics, which reaches beyond our role as workers to all aspects of our lives, is increased because our behavior, actions and decisions are a model to, and have consequences for others. Likewise, as followers, our responsibility is shared with our leaders, as we respond to their behavior, actions and commands by making our own decisions, which often have ethical implications. Thus, having a solid grounding on ethics and its intersection with leadership and followership is not only wise but also necessary.
