KMGT 633 ­ Business Leadership Week 6: Ethical leadership practice Relativity applies to physics, not ethics. — Albert Einstein Ethical behaviours and corporate social responsibility (CSR) are key catchwords of businesses in the 21st century. Gone are the days of "cowboy" business leaders who loosely adhered to laws and ethical responsibilities. As a result of past unethical practices, today's business leaders and the organisations that they lead are examined far more intensely than ever before. How we as business leaders handle these issues is critical to the survival and growth of our organisations. The records of leading business magazines are regularly dotted with examples of organisations that have not lived up to their ethical and/or social responsibilities; as a consequence both business leaders and their organisations have suffered massive losses and their leaders have served jail time. This week, you will critically analyse the role of ethics in leadership. You will evaluate the changing dynamics of global business from developed to developing nations. You also evaluate the impact of these dynamics on ethical standards and assess the process of establishing ethical standards to avoid corruption and support corporate social responsibility in emerging markets. The following Overview will delve into this topic in greater detail. Read this before progressing on to additional resources in this week. Document Week 6 Overview (PDF) Reference: Einstein, A.

    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.
