Leadership Trends You Must Know: Morality, Ethics, and Transparency

What you can do now:

  • Create your own definition of leadership. Think about what matters to you as a leader and what characteristics and skills you prioritize in leaders and then work to build those in yourself. With a strong definition, you can put filters in place to promote and train the best future leaders.
  • Create your personal code of ethics. Decide what you stand for and the personal guidelines you will follow to make good decisions. Establishing your ethical and moral compass now makes it easier to make the right decisions in the moment, even if they are difficult.
  • Practice transparency with your leaders and colleagues. You don’t have to be a leader to give transparent updates on projects and authentically share your work and personality.
  • Demand transparency in your organization. Ask questions and make it clear that employees want leaders who are ethical, authentic, and transparent. Do your part to build a culture of transparency that you can build on as a future leader.
