It would be great if all you had to do as a leader was to be a good person yourself. This would be the easy road; after all, most people already think they’re highly ethical. That’s an important prerequisite, but taking concrete steps as a manager to inspire ethical behavior in others is just as critical. Of course, good things don’t always happen to good people, but leading ethically may be one of those sweet spots where doing well and doing good actually go together.
