Ethical functioning of organizations relies on ethical leadership as well as the 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). Ethical leadership contributes to ethical ambiance leading employees to uphold ethical decisions. This webinar details psychological theories and research in explaining the process of making ethical and unethical decisions within organizations, the outcome of such decisions, and reviews strategies at individual and systemic levels to engender an ethical climate in the workplace.
