ETHIC AND LEADERSHIP

In this blog, I will be introducing ethic leadership and use the 2 principle areas of ethics, Deontological and Consequentialist and give the example of these. After that conclude by refrying for my talks.

leadership(source:Inspiring leadership, 2017)

Ethical leadership is defined as “through the individual action and interpersonal relationships to prove the appropriate behavior, and through two-way communication, strengthening and decision-making, to followers to promote such behavior … and evidence that moral leadership behavior can be personal and Organizational effectiveness has an important positive impact “(Rubin et al2010:216-17)

4v-model (Grace, 2017)

 

No matter what type of leadership, I just think ethically is important. In a sense, leadership is ethic. To support leadership must have four elements: vision, values, voice and virtue. If the four elements are out of balance and there is a terrible combination of ambiguity, personal power is higher than the organizational vision, placing personal interests in front of overall situation – selfish leaders. And if there is no vision, integrity does not have the ideal combination, will create a right but not the ability to achieve leadership. Voice cannot force the combination can lead to charity, but it will not open the new world. I believe only by balancing these that the leader can be loyal to an ethical ambition and fulfil that purpose for others (Grace, 2017).

 

 

In my opinion, the leadership issues and ethical issues are not simply black-and-white. There are two ethical issues: easy and challenging. The former is in the right not to choose between errors, while the latter is the correct choice between incorrect. If you do not have ethics and morality, you cannot have leadership; both cannot be separated. Moral character, as an important part of one’s life, is of importance for an eminent leader, because the essential difference between a prominent leader and a dangerous man is the important difference in moral character He was worthless and dangerous if he thought that the leader had no moral character (Andrews, 1989).

Do you agree with my vision of an ethical leader? Please leave your opinion below:

 

In recent years, some well-known Western companies such as Enron, Arthur Andersen, Clement Cross, and other companies because of moral problems leading to the collapse of severe collapse, resulted in Western scholars on corporate ethics moral concern, put forward the concept of corporate ethics leadership (Brooks, 2013).

 

 

 

 

With the deepening of the socialist market economy, the value of people tends to diversify increasingly, some leaders of various interests and opportunities of temptation, moral loss, alienation, moral leadership, and transformation of the integration of recent remodelling, it is a profound theoretical problem and an urgent practical problem. As far as I can see, as a leader, he should make clear his difficult position, take the miserable positioning as the benchmark, take the ancient history as a mirror, and rely on the moral belief, and continually improve their moral quality (Hill, 2007).

 

I will give the bad business ethics example by McDonald’s is what is known as the “McDonald’s Legislation” in popular parlance. In 1972, Ray Kroc, the company’s founder made a rare donation of $250,000 to Nixon’s reelection campaign and in return got a favorable legislation that allowed companies such as McDonald’s to pay teenage employees 20 percent less than federal minimum wages.  at the same time McDonald’s promoted Third World poverty, sold unhealthy food, exploited workers and children, tortured animals, and destroyed the Amazon rain forest. McDonald’s sued the group for libel (Bright Hub, 2014).

west-point (WEST POINT, 2017)

From the experience of leadership at West Point, I suggest that the pursuit of truth, judgment, self-discipline, and determination are the sources of influence on leaders of excellence, and the foundation upon which they inspire and motivate others. Courage, commitment, ability to make decisions, integrity, hardiness, empathy, adaptability, higher salience, etc. Also, and so is the West Point soldiers insisted on four years of philosophy and behavior. Excellence in leadership can be said that the leadership of the overall quality of the refining process, but also the process of improving the character (WEST POINT, 2017).

 

 

In the workplace, poor moral people, even if the ability to do something is right, not necessarily have a good result; good moral people, whether in the workplace or other ways will have good popularity, good opportunities. Good ethics, colleagues, and supervisors are willing to not get along with you, do not deal with you, will help you, there will be good job opportunities, the corresponding will have good results. In short, the future is the era of leadership, rather than the era of managers. It is not born ability, but the day after tomorrow to create it. As a leader, there must be three awe, namely fear of law and discipline, fear of personality, fear of word of mouth. Finally, I hope that every leader can re-regulation, improve moral self-cultivation.

leader

From my personal experience, I can say that the activities carried out during the leadership class helped me understand the fundamental role of leadership. To be a successful leader, it is important to create a stable environment in an organization where no stable staff will not be able to communicate effectively with the mutual understanding between leaders and followers in the organization, which can lead to chaos surroundings. In my opinion, the leader must combine the use of moral and purposeful methods, as well as the ability to listen to employees, by setting a positive example, respect the behavior of others as an example.

  1. It is important that providing a clear structure to demonstrate your work, and it should less description by applying detail information of organisations or people into the theories that you want to use. In general, it is the current direction to continue your study, just read again after you finished the work.

    1. Conflict of interest in legal practice takes various forms and crops up in all kinds of client matters. For me I will focuse on the ethic when I meet the problem. the interest and profit you could earned in the futher, but the ethic problem couln’t change.
