“Meeting the Ethical Challenges of Leadership provides a multi-dimensional, evidence-based, approach to ethics leadership illuminating alternative perspectives and providing insights into various worldviews within the context of Parker Palmer’s metaphor. Each chapter applies various evidence-based frameworks for evaluating, interpreting, understanding, communicating and connecting with a diverse learners and knowers. The text aids in providing the context for cultivating ethics leadership and scholarship as a lifelong learner.”
“A practical guide to taking ethical theory and applying that theory to personal and organizational character to make ethics foundational to decision making.”
“This book provides a unique approach to leadership ethics by contrasting how leaders can use their power and influence for good or evil. It is easy to read and understand. It is relevant for any discussion about leadership. The tools such as case studies and self-assessments are valuable in the classroom.”
This text is relevant, easy for students to comprehend. I use this typically during their first semester of graduate school. The students also love the book.
I have been using previous editions of this text but the changes in the 7th edition are gratefully received. Students love this text and I hear that a lot. This summer I have 33 online students comprising 2 courses because of the number who take it. And it is offered every semester.
