16 Trends Shaping the Future of Ethical Leadership

Thornton

By Linda Fisher Thornton

Today, I want to share with you the picture of the future that I see, based on a powerful movement toward positive, proactive ethical leadership. As a global community, we are increasingly aware of the impact of our choices on others.  We are more aware of our human connection and our responsibilities to one another. 

There is a trend toward considering our responsibilities broadly, beyond making profits to also making a difference. 

Here is my list of 16 trends shaping the future of ethical leadership. 

As we head into the New Year, let’s help our leaders be ready for this positive, proactive “ethical leadership future.”

  1. Thanks for helping spread the word Henry!

  2. Thanks so much, Zafar. I am hearing from many leaders who want to be proactive about ethics, and those leaders will tend to do better than the rest in this era of the ethically aware consumer.

  4. Thanks for this much needed positive thinking. A little negativity here; If this checklist was to be run against politicians and businessmen I have a feeling an overwhelming majority would find it hard to abandon the left side of your table.
    Great work Linda!

  5. Linda – This is such a truth-filled, POWERFUL list! Thank you for sharing!
