Ethical Leadership

Select one of the following cases from the Deresky (2014) text pertaining to ethics/business leadership in the global marketplace.

  1. An Ethics Role-Playing Case: Stockholders versus  Stakeholders
  2. Nike’s CSR Challenge
  3. Alibaba in 2011: Competing in China and Beyond
  4. Carrefour’s Misadventure in Russia
  5. After the Breakup: The Troubled Alliance between Volkswagen and Suzuki

Write a 1,750- to 2,100-word analysis of how a lack of ethical leadership creates significant risk for global business endeavors. Your analysis must do the following:

  • Describe the ethical issue in the case selected.
  • Explain how this issue broke down business communication and threatened solvency of the enterprise. Draw on continuing revelations of events in the domestic professional arena or the global environment to bolster your point that this issue continues to trouble efforts in the international environment.
  • Synthesize prior leadership research and learning to address how leadership may effectively manage risk in the global environment. Consider, for example, referring to Hames’ five literacies and other theories of leadership.
  • Evaluate the type of leadership that can succeed, then derive a definition of ethical leadership. Justify each point you make and provide specific examples of success.

Include at least six academic sources in the paper in APA format. The worksheet should have an APA-formatted title page as well

The word requirement for the assignments are specifically stated in the guidelines of the assignment. The word count is from the first word of the introductory paragraph to the last word of the conclusion paragraph. FYI.


1- There should be a cited reference for each section of a paper as there are conclusion statements in each section (to meet the grading criteria) so the conclusion should be supported by a reference as the assignments are evidence-based research, clinical papers.

2- Word Count- The word count is done from the first word of the introductory paragraph to the last word of the conclusion. The word count must be within the minimum and maximum word limit stated in the assignment instructions. A 10% – point reduction will be made in the total points for the assignment.
