business ethics ( lesson 6)

Lesson 6

Leadership is a basic requirement for developing an ethical corporate culture and reinforcing ethical decision making among employees. While it is important to have a CEO and board of directors committed to ethical decision making, it is equally important all employees understand their roles in becoming ethical leaders. There are many examples of ethical leadership failures, resulting in ethical and legal crises that damage firms.
