Ethical Leadership: What Does It Look like?
Schulte, Laura
Journal of Women in Educational Leadership, v7 n3 p107-113 Jul 2009
This article focuses on the development and validation of the Ethical Leadership Index (ELI). The development and validation processes included: adopting a framework; developing items; providing evidence of content validity; conducting a pilot study; and analyzing data to provide evidence of construct validity and reliability estimates. Five ethical principles that are mentioned in leadership models, theories, and approaches served as the framework for the ELI. They include respect for autonomy, beneficence, nonmaleficence, justice, and fidelity. The results of the study indicate that the ELI is a psychometrically sound instrument, which warrants its use in leadership programs and organizations. (Contains 1 table.)
