A decade of business scandals, mis-selling and other bad corporate behavior has created a serious lack of trust by the public in both companies and their leaders. So, how do you bring back that trust? Listen to Andrew Leigh, author of Ethical Leadership: Creating and sustaining an ethical business culture, on The Business Edge. He believes a new form of leadership is inevitable, and already on its way. That’s because forward looking companies realize that unethical companies do worse financially than responsible ones; that your customers want to do business with people they have confidence in; and that young people increasingly refuse to work for companies with a poor ethics track record. Therefore, the task of the new leadership is to create “Ethical Engagement” in which all stakeholders commit to helping the organization do the right thing.
