Ashford 5: – Week 4 – Discussion 1
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
Read the article by Yukl, Mahsud, Hassan, & Prussia (2013), as well as Chapter 7 of Gonzalez-Padron (2015). Complete the Checklist: Ethical Leadership Questionnaire, then answer these following questions from the text:
Which behaviors are the most important for you to trust the ethical leadership of a supervisor, manager, or company executive? Are there any descriptors in the list that are difficult to observe? How can a company measure the ethical leadership within the organization? How does personal experience with a leader (e.g., work assignments, disciplinary actions) skew your assessment of his or her ethical leadership? Cite an example based on personal experience.
Refer to terms as used in the textbook. Be sure to properly attribute your source(s) when posting your response. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts, allowing enough time for them to respond.
