Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Personal experience with a leader gives an individual the opportunity to personally access the leader's ethical leadership and use personal judgement to comply or alter the individual's assessment of a leader's ethical leadership. Personal contact is very effective in drawing conclusions on the leader regarding his ethical leadership. Completing assignment with the leader enables an individual to access the leader's thinking, his perception of issues, and his strategies of handling jobs. In some cases, the leader might use shortcuts to obtain the results of the assignments and this can change an individual's perception of the leader as an ethical leader. In a situation where an individual gets a disciplinary act from the leader, the kind of discipline action taken will determine whether or not the leader is ethical. In a case where the leader bends the rules to favor the employee, this action can alter the individual's assessment of the leader in regards to his ethics.
