To develop your own set of ethical leadership standards, begin by conducting five mini-case studies. In each study, identify a leader you are familiar with or one in the news who exhibits one of Northouse’s five ethical leadership principles. Select a different leader for each of the five principles. Explain the scenario in which the leader exhibited the particular principle as well as the leader’s actions and practices that aligned with this principle.
Then, using the scholarly literature on the topic of ethics and ethical leadership practices, behaviors, and traits, develop your own set of ethical leadership principles you will espouse in the business environment. Be sure the principles address both the impact and influence on your followers, as well as the impact on the greater organization’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts and focus.
