But, how can leader’s ethical behavior be distinguished? What are these ethical behaviors that affect the followers? And, how do we know when a leader is an ethical leader? Clearly, ethical leadership is a critical organizational matter, which needs a robust definition, and a model that shows how it effects the organization and its elements. One of the significant aspects of ethical leadership is its emphasis on internalized moral perspective, moral person, moral manager, and idealized influence (Brown and Trevin ̃o, 2006; Walumbwa et al., 2008).

Introduction Leadership according many theories can be defined using differing dimensions, as a trait, a process, an emergence, ascribed leadership etc. I have come to understand leadership as a process which requires certain traits whether innate or learned to carry out responsibilities for the achievement of business or agreed goals. As defined by Pasmore (2009), leadership is a culture (behaviour) which is defined by the collective actions of formal and informal leaders towards achieving the set organizational goals. This implies that leadership is about the leaders themselves and the relationship they share amongst them and their followers. Leadership Strategy is the processes and actions put in place to review the business strategies and identify areas of need for leadership requirements.

Assessing Corporate Social Responsibility from the IT perspective Whether you subscribe to the Drucker or the Friedman school of theory on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), the fact remains that society demands and expects the best level of responsibility from all organizations in terms of ethical guidance. In order to continue to grow in an extremely competitive market, a successful organization must possess the will and the power to continue to evolve in all elements of CSR. As with any other element of CSR, from environmental changes to information system challenges, an organization must learn to respond to the situation quickly and appropriately. Babin, Briggs, and Nicholson (2011) found that businesses that participates in “collaborative CSR initiatives create strong business value” (p. 28). This concept further builds the theory that a business relationship could be motivated by the idea of trust and empowerment.
