Leadership in Action: Thinking Straight: New Strategies Are Needed for Ethical Leadership

Book Description

After all the high-profile examples of ethical transgressions by top leaders in recent years, why do some leaders continue to make ethical mistakes? New research suggests that there is a pronounced disconnect between what leaders say they would do when faced with an ethical dilemma and what they might actually do. It also suggests that only when leaders begin to use specific strategies aimed directly at addressing certain biases and situational pressures will they be able to avoid ethical problems.
