Are You an Ethical Leader?
Jacoby, Michael A.
School Business Affairs, v76 n6 p14-16 Jul-Aug 2010
To "have" ethics is to hold to a set of beliefs about what is right and wrong or what is good and bad. One could argue that an individual will exhibit true ethics only when that individual has an internal motivation for his or her behavior. In essence, the "character" of ethics has everything to do with one's beliefs. In this article, the author provides a list of virtues of ethical leaders that he has shared with school business professionals during the past 15 years. Under each virtue is a list of questions to consider in examining one's leadership as a school business professional.
