ARE LEADERS ETHICAL?

I teach an ethics and social responsibility course at a University. I poll my students on various topics. The other day I ran this simple poll on 40 students:

“Most leaders I know are ethical.”

The majority of students gave a mixed response – indicating trust in leaders’ ethics was neither high nor low – but somewhere in the middle.

What are your thoughts? Take our poll and let’s broaden the discussion.

Please feel free to comment – Why are leader ethics not quite where we think they ought to be?
