1LEADERSHIPIntroduction:Leadership is most important in any situation and specifically in the organisations atpresent. Organisations require strong leadership for optimum effectiveness. It is known thatleadership is a mannerism which is either integral or which can be attainted. The organisationalleadership concept is concerned with emphasis on the development of leadership skills and theabilities which are relevant across the organisations. This is supposed to mean that the potentialof the individuals in order to face difficult situations in the industry and still requires growth inparticular situations. It is crucial that a leader possesses the suitable skills to control a group oforganisations (Northouse 2018).There should not be any sort of domination in the organisations. This acts as a deterrentto organisational success. There needs to be a proper guidance of the individuals who are thereunder him and there should also be a sense of direction for the timely achievement oforganisational goals. There needs to be a sense of optimism within the characteristics of theleader. An organisational leader who is ideal should not dominate over others. It is necessary toguide the individuals under him and provide them with a sense of direction in order to help themachieve the organisational goals. The people in important leadership positions also need to beserious and committee towards the needs of the organisation. At times the employees might feellow or depressed. In this situations it is necessary for a leader to ensure that they feel motivate insuch situations (Lyles 2014).
2LEADERSHIPLeadership ethics and its importance in the present scenario:Ethics and the importance of leadership is crucial in every scenario and this is absent inthe present world. Much importance is not given to the present scenario. It is necessary that theleadership ethics be followed at every stage of the leadership procedure. Often it happens in caseof ethical dilemmas that the outcomes are found in the negative. This should not be the case asthe ethics are the crucial aspect of any organisation. It can most importantly be said that ethicsare not only crucial to the organisation but to the concept of proper leadership as well. Ethicaltheories concerned with leadership focus on two very important theories. These include theactions and behaviour of the leasers, the personality as well as the characteristic traits of theleaders. A leader is responsible for driving change in the organisation and also for influencingthe subordinates or the followers to achieve a common goal be it in any noteworthy situation(Raelin 2011).It is desirable for organisational good that an effective and ethical leader has certain traitsand characteristics. The leader should possess dignity and respectfulness towards others. Theleaders should respect others and they are bound to get respect back in turn. The leaders shouldlisten effectively to their teams and their suggestions should also be acknowledged (Tourish2014).It also needs to be kept in mind that leaders are responsible for serving others be it theirjuniors, subordinates or the company as a whole. Ethical leaders need to ideally place the needsof their subordinates before their own. The behaviour of the leaders should be such that it isalways fruitful to their followers.
3LEADERSHIPOften in the present messy world, there are loads of ethical dilemmas which the managersare faced with. In such situations it is often seen that the managers succumb to the pressure of thehigher authorities and therefore do not have the courage to do what is actually right for aparticular situation. The idea of justness is not embodied in the leaders which is detrimental bothfor them as well as for the organisation as a whole. Honesty is also expected from the leadersunder all situations. False information as well as negativity might lead to situations in whichthere are errors in judgement as well as other organisational issues. In the present scenario in theworld of today it is crucial for organisations to ensure that their leaders are just, honest andethical in order to avoid making the situations even more messy than they already are. Theleadership in organisations therefore need proper ethics (Ancona et al. 2009). Ethics aids leadersin balancing of truth and loyalty which balances both the short and long term goals from anyparticular situation. It is often not understood that ethics require leaders to be impartial yetengaged. Ethics require that managers look for the concealed alternative in scenarios which arequestionable ethically. It acts as a compass where the leaders navigate between the right and thewrong (Lyles 2014).Importance of communication in organisations:Communication is a crucial tool for people to interfere with one another or with groups orwith the other parts of society at large. It is not a particular text or mail but an overalleffectiveness of the communication. Proper understanding in this particular aspect requires theall round understanding of the “values, assumptions, beliefs and expectations of the people” withwhom we communicate.
