A company’s leadership is also involved training to handle the unethical dilemmas. An environment that practices ethical leadership, must have written codes of ethics on which an organization’s culture get to develop. Ethical compliances are also involved in the development of corporate social responsibility.

Here are some recommendations for the company that can improve the ethical leadership practice in the company.
Ethics act as the set standard that measure how good or bad an action is. There is a direct correlation between ethics and leadership because ethics looks into the identity of the leader and their function. Any discussion on ethics and leadership contains two main aspects that should be taken into consideration; the personality and character of leaders and the behaviour and actions of leaders. Leaders are expected to motivate and persuade employees to achieve common goals however, in doing so this must treat their employees with respect and understand that the workforce is a composition of multiple personalities unique to each individual. Effective and ethical leaders operate
According to Coghlan and Brannick (2014) is particularly the insider action researcher also confronted with political issues. Thus, an insider action researcher has to think further how ethics and political power are linked with each other. As echoed by Cunliffe (2004) the researcher has to build up good relationships with all relevant stakeholders for achieving ethical objectives. This includes that the (insider) action researcher must have the willingness to trust relevant stakeholders and to accept contrasting viewpoints (Holt, 2006). Moreover, Holt (2006) points out; that rhetoric is a valuable tool for developing the moral character of managers and from my point of view helpful in strengthening relationships and trust while conducting action
• Showing Empathy: this is one of the most important characteristic of a servant leader, to be sensitive and able to understand, accept and recognize the needs and feeling of the people. • Service to Others: a servant leader is first a servant to its subject as define by Green Lead. A servant lead prioritizes the needs of others; his approach is that of openness and fairness rather than being a dictator. • Commitment to the growth of his Subject: A servant leader ensures the growth of his subject is outmost in his agenda. He does everything to ensure his subjects are placed on an agenda that ensure personal, career and intellectual growth is guaranteed.
In addition, ethical decision-making is a process that encompasses a great use of self-awareness and critical thinking by the practitioner. Therefore, there should be a series of steps that a social worker must take in order to resolve or intent to resolve such a dilemma. I believe that the first step should be recognizing what the ethical dilemma is. Second, the practitioner should be self-aware of how professional values, rather than personal, may interfere with the decision-making process. Lastly, the social worker must consider the structural, cultural, and agency context issues surrounding the presenting ethical dilemma.
A leader needs to adapt to situations and use techniques that are inclusive in order to avoid conflict and aids decision-making. Building relationships, considering others feelings and celebrating their successes with them can maintain strong leadership. By encouraging my team to participate in the decision making process I empower them, which inspires job satisfaction this reduces conflict, poor time keeping and absenteeism. I need to be able to help my staff team understand the need for change and I do this by being clear about my aims and objectives, the actions required and the part they need to play. Sometimes I need to take control especially where health and safety is concerned, these policies and procedures me adhered to at all times.
This committee would be responsible for the development and operation of the ethics management framework. They will also oversee the implementation and administration of the ethics management framework, including administration and training of policies and procedures, and resolving ethical dilemmas. iii) Establish an Ethics Office An ethics officer manages the institutionalization of ethics in an organisation1. This role is becoming more common, particularly in larger and more progressive organizations. The ethics officer is usually trained about matters of ethics in the workplace, particularly about resolving ethical dilemmas.2 With ethics being questionable in CORCON, there is no doubt that the existence of an ethics office will be beneficial to employees and the company as a whole.
An efficient work environment helps in sound and stable growth. Therefore, human relations should be kept into mind by a leader. He should have personal contacts with employees and should listen to their problems and solve them. He should treat employees on humanitarian terms. So, from my perspective, those are the reason why leadership is essential and really important in an organization.
