This kind of leader acknowledges the\n\ncomplexity of running a responsible business, yet tries to do it anyway.”\n\n― Andrew Leigh, Ethical Leadership: Creating and Sustaining an Ethical Business\n\nCulture\n\nPerhaps the greatest challenge and responsibility of an ethical leader is to set an\n\nunwaveringly strong example of integrity while simultaneously considering the long-term\n\nneeds of all stakeholders (Mihelic, Lipicnik, & Tekavcic, 2010). This can be a daunting task\n\nand requires a myriad of consistently demonstrated characteristics in order to be effective. An\n\nethical leader treats people with respect and kindness—listening not only to other’s concerns,\n\nbut to their ideas for change, growth and improvement. An ethical leader is fair, refuses to\n\n“play favorites,” or tolerate discrimination. He/she encourages open communication,\n\nwelcomes input, makes time to engage followers in conversations about values and ethical\n\ndilemmas, and moves expeditiously to address and remedy ethical violations. An ethical\n\nleader fosters a teaming environment where employees feel part of the process and therefore\n\naccept ownership of the company’s successes and failures. Perhaps the most important\n\ncharacteristic of an effective leader, however, is “walking the talk.” (Rabinowitz) There is\n\nadditional responsibility on the leader to demonstrate the core values he/she expects from\n\nhis/her team: acting with humanity, humility and honesty. These core values create a\n\nthriving work environment where everyone feels respected, valued, and inspired to contribute\n\nas part of a collective effort, regardless of their place in the organization. An effective leader\n\ncreates an ethical culture that employees embrace without resistance. ETH301.3 SLP. LastName\n\n1. Describe the relationship between the ethical leader and the follower.\n\nThe efficacious leader-follower relationship is symbiotic, with each party acutely aware\n\nof their interdependence. If the leader has done his/her job successfully, the followers will\n\nfeel like they are in partnership with the leader as a cohesive team, not as voiceless\n\nsubmissives. The roles of leader and follower are different, but one is not necessarily more\n\nimportant than the other. Everyone should be working towards a common goal, with the\n\nhierarchy somewhat muted. Followers should be encouraged to give input, respectfully\n\nchallenging the leader to keep him/her on track to further joint goals. For this to happen, the\n\nleader must solicit and then embrace feedback about projects, processes, and even his/her\n\nown performance (Men, 2014). Leaders must be willing to admit when they make mistakes\n\nto create openness with stakeholders, and to model the receipt of constructive feedback. An\n\nethical leader must have zero tolerance for egregious ethical breaches and must be willing to\n\nfire even a top producer to demonstrate this point (Mihelic, Lipicnik, & Tekavcic, 20"},{"left":"","right":""},{"left":"","right":""},{"left":"","right":""}]
