By Linda Fisher Thornton When people change jobs, how often do you think it is because of poor leadership? Job seekers look for places to work where they can find meaning and add value. It takes more than a paycheck to keep them engaged in their work and bringing their full potential to it. In my experience, ethical leaders are much easier to work for. They have a certain way of making work fun, and keeping us challenged. They care what happens to us. They think long-term and support our learning and growth. What are the top 10 benefits of working for an ethical leader? Here is my starter list. What would you add?
- They provide a low-stress work environment (even if it’s really busy)
- They listen well
- They support and encourage
- They use open and honest communication
- You know that you can count on them to honor their word
- They treat you with respect
- You can ask them any question (without feeling stupid)
- The work is meaningful
- You always feel valued and appreciated
- Their companies perform better (job security)
Anyone who has had the opportunity to work for an ethical leader will smile just remembering the experience.
