Despite the agitation and difficulty of our election year, strong and ethical leadership is thought to be one of the most important factors guiding our society according to an article by The Harvard Business Review. This survey was completed by executives and therefore does not represent the everyday person on the street but the article brings up very interesting points that are relevant for all of us in the working trenches. The top three takeaways (there are ten all together) are that effective leaders combine high ethical and moral standards; strong leaders provide objectives and goals; and three, leaders who have an impact are able to communicate goals and clear expectations. The article emphasized that ethical and moral standards together create a trusting environment where people feel that they can work productively and that their work has meaning.
