Description: Ethical functioning of organizations relies on ethical leadership as well as ethical behavior of employees. Ethical leadership is “the demonstration of normatively appropriate conduct through personal actions and interpersonal relationships, and the promotion of such conduct to followers through two-way communication, reinforcement, and decision-making” (Brown, Treviño & Harrison, 2005, p. 120).
