Ethics Defined
Ethics is concerned with the kinds of values and morals an individual or society finds desirable or appropriate (Northouse 424)
Leadership Defined
Leadership is a process whereby an individual influences a group of individuals to achieve a common goal (Northouse 5).

Ethical leadership is concerned with the nature of leaders' behaviors, and with their virtuousness. In any decision-making situation, ethical issues are either implicitly or explicitly involved.
