Leadership And…Ethical Thinking

5 Things to Remember About Ethical Thinking

This is a Themed Post featuring earlier Leading in Context™ Blog Posts about Ethical Thinking. Each Post illustrates a different aspect of ethical thinking.  Enjoy!

2. When we blame, we are not taking responsibility for our leadership.

3. As leaders, we need to include sustainability as a factor in every decision.

4. When budget drives us, our decisions are not strategic.

5. We need to be thinking broadly, deeply and long-term about our leadership responsibilities.

Author’s Note: This post can be used as a discussion-starter for leader groups and leadership classes. To use it that way, have each leader read the articles in advance, then discuss what you learned when you gather as a group.
