Module 3      2 Abstract The topic of Business Ethics covers a wide range of topics.  The author through a few  citations attempted to cover brief areas on Leadership Skills, styles combined with  Ethics and Values. In author’s view, Leadership is the ability to lead. It is not a skill that  can simply be picked up from reading a book; leadership skills are gained through  experience,   things   such   as   public   speaking   or   organizing   an   event.   Author   also  described the meaning of leading from the middle, ethical leadership theory, a moral  leadership theory and his leadership style in terms of ethics.

Module 3      3 Module 3 Deliverables Assignments:  Questions Question:  1.   In your view, what is leadership? Why is it important and why is  studying it filled with pitfall? Response:   The dictionary defines Leadership as the capacity or ability to lead" or  "Guidance; Direction". Many people think it is simply about being successful, but it  comes down to more than that. Leaders   are   those   people   that   use   their   skills   in  leadership to make a difference: presidents, teachers, etc. It is not a skill that can simply  be picked up from reading a book; leadership skills are gained through experience,  things such as public speaking or organizing an event. The real meaning of leadership  is having an impression on others, possibly inspiring their decisions. Those who are not  leaders are followers. A follower, as defined by the dictionary, is "One who subscribes to  the   teachings   or   methods   of   another."   Maybe   having   followers   is   a   sign   of   good  leadership.  A leader must have good communication skills. If that person is not open- minded, unwillingly to accept the ideas of others, and does not clearly state his ideas,  he cannot sufficiently lead others. An effective leader must also have the ability to make

Module 3      4 changes. He cannot always stick to the same teachings. As times change, so must  ideas. A good leader must absolutely accept failure. Failure is a part of life. If he cannot  accept it, and decides to quit after one tiny setback, the impression he gives his  followers will be negative. If his followers decide to go by his example, they will not be  effectively influenced. A good leader must follow the example of other great leaders, like  presidents or even famous public speakers. Keep in mind that the impressions made on  followers is what matters most. Leadership is one of the best qualities a person can  have. If you cannot lead someone or something you will never be able to do anything
