Leadership has many definitions. Chin, Desormeaux, and Sawyer (2016) define leadership as a relationship between followers and a leader with the intent to promote change through a mutual vision.

For example the American Health Information Management Association and the American Physical Therapist Association established a code of ethics for its members.
