Abstract

An effective leader possesses a firm ethical code that guides his or her actions, and ultimately, determines the morality of those actions. Ideally, this ethical code complements the organization's code. Often, these leaders and the organizations with which they are aligned are not even aware of the source of these morals and the ethical code that results from their implementation. For many leaders, there is a strong relationship between their Christian beliefs and the moral code and ethics required for effective leadership. However, the origin of morality is not Christianity and Christian belief is not necessary to the ethical development of a leader.
