Responsible leadership

  • "…fairness, honesty, a long and hard view." –

    - John Wells, president of IMD Business School, Lausanne


Responsible leadership pless and mack 2011

Responsible leadership(Pless and Mack, 2011)

  • Value-based and long-termleader-stakeholder relationships (not leader-subordinate relationships)

  • Responsible leaders build "sustainable relationships with stakeholders…to achieve mutually shared objectives based on a vision of business as a force for good" to achieve sustainable social change for the many [common good] "and not just a few (shareholders, managers). "

  • NOT an ego trip!

Ethical leadership pless and mack 2011

Ethical leadership(Pless and Mack, 2011)

  • Leader as a positive role model who acts according to value-based standards and uses principles of moral reasoning in decisions

  • Focuses on the micro-level, the individual characteristics of a leader, and not on the relationships and multi-level outcomes which characterize responsible leadership.

Moral management

  • Immoral managers

    • Active negation of what is moral

    • Exploit opportunities for themselves and their company

    • Example: Top management of Enron before company's collapse

  • Amoral managers

    • Insensitive to potential long-term consequences of their actions

    • Lack of ethical awareness

    • Believe business and morality don't mix

    • Ex: Leadership of Total after Erika oil spill

  • Moral managers

    • Ethics drive their behavior

    • Want to be profitable only if fairness & justice are respected

    • Obeying the law is the minimum, not the standard

    • Ex: CEO of Johnson & Johnson duringTylenol scandal

Mike Tomlin

Tony Dungy

Mike Tomlin, cited in Rhoden, W., "Steeler's Coach Takes a Quiet Route to Brillance," NY Times 2 Feb. 2011

"He (Tony Dungy) tries to lead through service, and I do the same. I learned that from him in providing the men what they need to be great. Every day when I go to work, I don't think about things I have to do, I think about the things I can do to make my men successful. So I have a servant's mentality in terms of how I approach my job, and I get that from Coach Dungy."

(Many leaders have a mentor)



Authentic leaders

Authentic leaders

  • Influence, energize, and develop followers through:

    • Self awareness: deep understanding of values, emotions, motives, goals, identity

    • Self-regulation: the ability to align values with intention and actions. "Walk the talk"

    • Positive psychological state

  • Comparison to responsible leadership:

    • Both authentic and responsible leadership emphasize organizational impacts.

    • Responsible leadership's emphasis on stakeholder relationships takes it beyond organizational boundaries.

Spiritual leadership

Spiritual leadership

  • Leaders who bring meaning in the workplace

  • How?

    • Motivating vision

    • Meaningful job

      • Skill variety

      • Task identity

      • Task significance

      • Autonomy

      • Feedback

      • Recognition

      • Empowerment

    • Focus on employee well-being

  • Not the strong external / stakeholder relationship focus of responsible leadership.

Leadership gap in the financial sector

Leadership gap in the financial sector

  • Focus on individual bonuses instead of overall good of the company.

  • Too much individual decision making  companies have asked business schools, to focus more on team leadership.

  • Weak management skills: give little feedback, expect long hours, destroy work-life balance

  • Lack of government oversight / regulation and cooperation with competitors.
