Pierre Towns BUAD-304 Wednesday 8 PM March 28, 2006 Ethical Dilemma Pg. 350 1. Should leaders be judged solely on their end achievements? Or do the means they choose also reflect on their leadership qualities? Leadership is defined in the text as the ability to influence a group toward the achievement of goals, so therefore a leader is the person that influences a group toward the goals. There is no mention of ethics in this definition, and many great leaders use unethical tactics in order to achieve success. I think that it is acceptable to consider people who use unethical tactics to get success as great leaders, but I think those people should be looked down upon. For example, cruel dictators can be looked at as great leaders but they are looked at as people with flawed characters. I believe that means leaders choose reflect their leadership qualities which are already predetermined based upon character. For example, a person with a flawed character will have leadership qualities that allow him to mistreat his subordinates and use unethical tactics to get to the top.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
