It is within human nature to act on impulse and self-regard, regardless of personal ethics. The everyday person makes decisions to benefit themselves, thinking of their ethical standpoint only when faced with an ethical dilemma. These ethical dilemmas require the person to choose where they stand when it comes to their moral compass: do good for society or for themselves. When making these decisions, their subconscious still looks to what could enhance their situation, but those with strong moral compasses focus on the right thing to do.

Ethics is the system of moral principles which affect people in taking decisions and lead their lives. It is concerned with what is good for individuals and society. Ethics is derived from the Greek word “ETHOS” which means custom, habit, character and is also described as moral philosophy (‘BBC-Ethics-Introduction to Ethics’, 2014).

It is the most critical factor in building a committed team. Because leaders with integrity can be trusted to do what they say they are going to do” (Astin and Astin, 2001; DePree, 1992, p. 10; Northouse, 2001, p. 20 as cited by Storr, 2004). I believe integrity is important because a leader who doesn’t have integrity may use crude means to achieve a goal and this might bring trouble to him and his followers in the long run.

This leader stands for his values and does not give in to pressures of the society or environment.

Ethical leaders help give meaning to their employees‟ work and ensure that organizational decisions are based on sound moral values(Piccolo, Greenbaum, Den Hartog, & Folger, 2010).Ethical leaders are always making efforts to incorporate moral principles in their beliefs, values and behaviour; they are committed to higher purpose, prudence, pride, patience, and persistence (Khuntia &Suar, 2004).In conceptualizing of ethical leadership, Trevino, Hartman &Brown (2000)present a matrix comprising unethical leadership weak moral person, weak moral manager, hypocritical leadership weak moral person, strong moral manager, ethical leader strong moral person, strong moral manager, and ethically silent or neutral leadership (weak/strong moral person, weak moral manager). In a similar fashion, Trevino &Brown (2004) propose an executive must be perceived as both a “moral person” and a “moral manager to have a reputation of ethical leadership. “A “moral person” is related to good character; the leader is honest and trustworthy, show concern for employee welfare and is seen as approachable. Whereas, a “moral manager,” is one who leads others on the ethical dimension, allow employee to know what is expected, and holds them accountable. Moral managers set ethical standards, communicate ethics messages, use the position of leadership to promote ethical conduct at work and use rewards and punishments to guide ethical behaviour in the organization.
