Leadership concerns influencing others and is fundamentally a matter of human relationships. Whether we realize it or not, we all have a theory about human nature. What is yours? Here are some questions to consider in your essay:
- How can those in leadership positions ensure they are using their power ethically?
- Discuss a time in which you (or someone else you know) reverted to using position power to influence others. Looking back, would you have done anything differently?
- Has a person in a leadership or management position ever asked you (or someone you know) to do something unethical on the job? What did you do and what was your justification in doing so?
- What can leaders and followers do to overcome ethical challenges involving power and influence?
