As a leader, would you be seen by your followers as meeting the standards of moral leadership?
Are you a moral leader? Do you act out of a relentless commitment to improve the quality of something or someone? Do you carefully consider what is the right thing to do? Do you have a moral purpose - wanting to make a difference that matters most?
Leaders must have the highest standards and ethical strength. Their character is always on display - followers ask, "Did she do what she said she would do?" Do his actions reflect what we value in our culture and conform to the highest professional principles?" They are quick to point out when the leadership behaviour is inappropriate, self-serving, and misaligned with the values of the organization.
Moral leaders stand for something - and use every opportunity to communicate their stand to others. ....They don't quit when it gets tough - when they hit a roadblock, they find another way.
