Ethical Dimensions of Leadership

Ethical Dimensions of Leadership

January 1996 | 168 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
The crucial role of the leader of an organization is explored in this book. Examining the various modal orientations of leadership and demonstrating that effective leadership is one in which the leader's behaviours and exercise of influence are consistent with ethical and moral values, the book argues for an end to the traditional separation of personal and public morality. It offers practical strategies for effective leadership, such as employee empowerment, together with suggestions about how leaders can prepare for ethical leadership. Account is also taken of nonwestern sociocultural environments.
