Question description

Unethical Versus Ethical Leadership

It takes courage to lead an organization with ethics.

For instance, Leaders at AIG argued that they were obligated to pay bonuses to executives even after the company was bailed out by the U.S.  Government.  They stated that they had a contractual obligation to pay these bonuses.  Many people argued that the Leaders at AIG acted unethically when paying those bonuses.  

Others said they were justified in doing so.

Write a 2 page paper.  In your paper address the following:

  • How does a leader find the courage to step through fear and confusion to act ethically despite the risks involved?
  • Give an example of a situation in business where you observed a leader acting unethically/ethically.
  • Knowing what you know now how would you have counseled them?
  • Conclude your paper by describing how you will prepare yourself to lead ethically.

Include a title page and 3-5 references.  Only one reference may be from the internet (note Wikipedia).  The other reference must be from the Grantham University Online Library.  Please adhere to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA), (6th ed. 2nd printing) when writing and submitting assignments and papers.
