PHMC’s CEO should implement standards of ethical conduct and become a role model of it (Perry, 2014, p. 35). By exercising leadership many of the ethical conflict can be avoided and the whole organization is impacted positively. The textbook quotes Bennis and Namus (1985, 186) to define a leader: “leaders are persons who are able to influence others; this influence helps to establish the organizational climate for ethical conduct; ethical conduct generates trust; and trust contributes substantially to the long term success of the organization” (Perry, 2014, p. 36).

Barnes Center for Enlisted Education (BCEE) defines values as core beliefs regarding what is right and what is fair in terms of one’s actions and interactions with others (BCEE, 2017c, p. 4). Through a series of stakeholder meetings, Cheryl and her team developed six core principles that helped guide employees to achieve their collective purpose, “to inspire servant leaders to achieve superior results” (Bachelder, 2015). This helped align the organization to work together to achieve organizational goals.
